1st there was rain that postponed the 54th annual running of the Daytona 500 for the first time in it's history, then lap 2 a big crash took out Jimmy Johnson, Danica Patrick and last year's Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne they are all collected in the wreck.

Top contender Jeff Gordon blows and engine, then with 40 laps to go Juan Pablo Montoya crashes into a jet dryer on the speedway in turn 3 and NASCAR brings out the red flag, sprinkles a little Tide laundry detergent on the track cleans it up then back to racing after a very very long red flag.

It's been a wild & crazy ride! After delays and unexpected circumstances to make this a long Daytona 500 Congrats to the 2012 Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth!
