After being delayed for over an hour, and then being red flagged for more than five hours, the Geico 400 at Chicagoland finally came to an end with Matt Kenseth getting the first win in the Chase.

When the Geico 400 started, we only saw one caution, which was brought out at Lap 30 because of the rain that delayed the race.

With 109 Laps completed though, rain would set in and postponed the race for over five hours.

When drivers finally went back to green flag racing, we saw cautions for debris, and watched as several drivers ran into car problems.

Specifically Joey Logano and Dale Earnhardt Jr. ran into engine problems and were the only two Chase drivers to not complete the Geico 400.

Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, and Matt Kenseth were strong throughout the race. Kyle Busch looked like he would be the one to win, but after a caution that came out toward the end of the race, Matt Kenseth was able to get out in front and wouldn't be caught.

Kyle would finish in second, and with the first Chase race over, Joe Gibbs Racing emerged as the strongest team moving forward through the post season.

Matt Kenseth and the 20 team have won their sixth win of the season, and are clearly one of the strongest teams in the Chase.

Make sure to join us here next weekend as the Chase moves onto New Hampshire for the Sylvania 300.

 

Winner: Matt Kenseth
