Erik Jones captures first career victory in a wild race at Daytona

The pole is the fourth of his career The pole is the fourth of his career

Thanks to a push from Chris Buescher, Jones was able to get ahead of Truex Jr. and stretched the advantage to a couple of vehicle lengths as the field raced through Turns 3 and 4. Then Willam Byron would overtake the lead on the ensuing lap. "How about that race boys and girls!" My first Cup win, my first win at Daytona, my first superspeedway win. I thought we were out of it and all of a sudden we were right back in it, take the lead and ran away. That saw a couple of questionable moves made by one driver that caused to big wrecks that knocked out many of NASCAR's major drivers. Stage two was also one by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. the rest of the top 10 on the stage included #34 Michael McDowell, #88 Alex Bowman, #95 Kasey Kahne, #13 Ty Dillon, #48 Jimmie Johnson, #42 Kyle Larson, #3 Austin Dillon, #6 Trevor Bayne and #31 Ryan Newman rounded out the top 10.

KENNINGTON SPINS: D.J. Kennington, who ran as high as second after much of the field was pounded in accidents, caused the night's seventh caution with a spin with 27 laps to go.

JOHNSON PENALIZED: Jimmie Johnson, seeking to end a 40-race winless streak, was running up front with 40 laps to go when his crew serviced the vehicle outside its pit box.

With 11 laps left to go in the stage, things got back underway with Stenhouse Jr. leading the way.

Stenhouse won the first stage, taking the lead from pole-sitter Chase Elliott on the 14th lap. Both Keselowski and Byron got wrapped up in two separate wrecks, but that didn't stop Keselowski from directing his frustration at the 20-year-old rookie.

Brad Keselowski won the battle off of pit road and would lead the field at the start of stage 2 in the Coe Zero 400 at Daytona. Stenhouse bumped Kyle Busch and sent the No. 18 Toyota into the wall. "Ricky (Stenhouse) was doing the best he could to give me a good push and had a great run to take the lead, and the vehicle in front of me just threw a late, bad block, Keselowski said".

Dillon has enjoyed the spoils that come with winning NASCAR's biggest race, including a visit with retired National Basketball Association great Shaquille O'Neal. Keselowski's No. 2 Ford slammed into the side of Busch, and more than a dozen cars were unable to slow down.

"When one vehicle sits sideways in front of the field at 200 miles per hour, you can't get through it", driver Joey Logano said of the mishaps.

Defending race victor Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has won the first stage of the Cup Series race at Daytona. "It usually happens much later in the night".
