Dayton 500 finally decided after long delay

The Daytona 500 has finally been decided with Matt Kenseth claiming the checkered flag.

The race was red flagged for 2-hours, 5 minutes and 29-seconds Monday night to fix the track.

The problem occurred when Juan Pablo Montoya's car sent him spinning under caution and into a safety truck which held 200 gallons of jet kerosene and it burst into flames.

Montoya was able to escape without injury.
