A NASCAR driver gets a long-awaited victory in an extra long race.

FOX News Radio's Steve Rappoport has the story:

It took about nine hours to get a winner.

(Race Call) Kenseth owns the race track -- double-wide for fourth. Newman inside of Stenhouse. Matt Kenseth from the poll, breaks the drought, wins Bristol!

The call on FOX Sports. Kenseth ending his 51 race skid.

(Kenseth) "Last year we just... there were some races we had chances to win and just.. things weren't lining up for us... we just couldn't get it to happen... and tonight was kind of the opposite -- so everything worked out."

Rain delayed the start of the race for nearly 90 minutes and stopped it three times.

NASCAR tacked on 11 extra laps because of a quick shower then mopped up the track for a two-lap overtime sprint.
