After the race was first postponed, and pushed back form Saturday night to Sunday at Noon, We saw a race filled with cautions, and even saw a big wreck which red flagged the race.

Jimmie Johnson would put on a show at Kentucky, leading most of the race.

Unfortunately for the 48 though, he would have issues on a late race caution, and would lose his huge lead.

Johnson wasn't the only driver to stumble though. Keselowski would get caught up in the big wreck, and dropped out of the top 10 in the standings.

Denny Hamlin hit the wall, and was shaken up a bit after getting out of his car. He continues to struggle to make it into the Chase, and at this point, needs to win his way into the post season.

Kenseth and the 20 team would take a big gamble and take no tires during the last pit stop, and would have enough left for him to end up in victory lane.

Kenseth has won four races this season, and has been one of the top drivers on the oval tracks like Kentucky this season.

As NASCAR moves closer to the Chase, it's hard to deny that Matt and the 20 teams are solid contenders for the championship.

Thanks for following the race along with us here on the Bleacher Report. Join us next week as we cover the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona!

Matt Kenseth wins at Kentucky!
