It was a crazy night at the Daytona 500. After rain moved the race to Monday night, the Great American Race featured several high speed wrecks and a bizarre incident that saw Juan Pablo Montoya crash into a jet drier truck during a caution resulting in a massive fire and two-hour delay.

When the race finally concluded over six hours after its start, Matt Kenseth crossed the finish line first to claim his second career Daytona 500 victory (the first coming in 2009).

Last year, Inspiring Athletes posted an interview with Kenseth (and wife Katie) who talked about the importance of ministry at the track:

“Chapel services on race day have a calming effect,” he said. “It’s a nice time for us to worship and try to get the message and hear some music and have a little fellowship together before we get to racing.”
