A game-changing crash on lap 118 of Sunday's Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona Int'l Speedway paved the way for multiple drivers to earn career-best finishes in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He was first on the leaderboard when the race was red-flagged with 33 laps to go due to lightning, and after a two-hour and 12-minute delay, he was declared the victor.

"I would have liked to go back racing and win it the way I wanted to, but our team did a great job this week managing all the chaos ... and finishing second with a back-up vehicle is pretty good". "I never even saw myself running a Cup race until I got a call a few months ago to do Talladega". "It's absolutely a blessing, pretty incredible that I have so many people around me who have given me this opportunity", the 20-year-old said. "I prayed as much as I could for rain", Haley told NBC Sports during the delay.

Busch called the decision by NASCAR a "judgment call on their part". But I'm not going to feel bad about at all. If we go racing we go racing. "I can't do anything about it". William Byron was the runner-up with teammate Jimmie Johnson third. Rounding out the top five were Ty Dillon and Ryan Newman.

The race - the last surrounding the July Fourth holiday at Daytona since 1959 - was scheduled for Saturday night but forced into Sunday afternoon because of persistent rain and lightning that washed out most of this final Independence Day party at NASCAR's birthplace. The green flag is now set for Sunday at 1 p.m. ET from Daytona International Speedway. His Chevrolet wiggled, Bowyer hit him from behind in his Ford, and because they were at the front of the field, it caused a huge wreck.

Clint Bowyer pulled out of line and tried to pass Austin Dillon for the lead, but Dillon would not relinquish the spot.

A young driver from Winamac, Indiana is the victor of the last July NASCAR race at Daytona International Speedway. "I was being aggressive and trying to keep the lead". The cars came together and caused the massive wreck. "I got under him and he blocked and he just finally wrecked us all".
