Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the rain-delayed Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway, which ended at 2:41 Monday morning with a horrific last-lap crash.
The outcome was not in doubt as Earnhardt dominated the race. But as the pack of cars chased him on a two-lap overtime sprint to the finish, contact in traffic sent Austin Dillon's car flying upside down into the catch fence.
"That catch fence took a hell of a shot," Earnhardt said.
