On a dark, rainy day in Talladega, Matt Kenseth was the only driver for Team Interstate to make it through unscathed. The driver of the No. 20 Husky Tools Toyota Camry finished eighth in Sunday’s Aaron’s 499 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race after leading a race-high 142 laps.

Kenseth’s teammates Denny Hamlin and Brian Vickers, sharing driving duties in the No. 11 Camry, finished 34th, while Kyle Busch finished 37th. Busch and Vickers were involved in the same multi-car accident on lap 42 and returned to the track many laps down after making extensive repairs.

The race finished close to darkness thanks to a three-hour, 36-minute rain delay that started on lap 130.

Hamlin, recovering from a back injury suffered March 24, started the race to collect valuable points in the championship standings, but did not want to risk further injury. He climbed out of the car during the race’s first caution and was replaced by Brian Vickers. Watch the driver swap in the video below:
