After starting at the back due to an engine change, Matt Kenseth put on a strong performance in the final 100 laps and then held off Jeff Gordon and Mark Martin to win the rain-delayed Samsung/Radio Shack 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. It marked Kenseth’s second victory of the season in seven races. Torrential rains throughout the day on Sunday postponed the race until Monday afternoon.
