Stenhouse wins another stage at Daytona

Stenhouse wins another stage at Daytona

"The first one, (William Byron) blocked (Brad Keselowski) and from where I was sitting, I thought we were going to get to the inside of him, so I wasn't really expecting (Keselowski) to check up that quick", Stenhouse said.

It also may have been a much-needed victory for NASCAR's so-called "Young Guns, " the up-and-coming generation of drivers who had gotten most of the promotion and none of the previous wins in 2018.

For Jones, a 22-year-old MI native driving in his first season for Joe Gibbs Racing, the breakthrough victory came in his 57th career start. Ryan Blaney and Darrell Wallace Jr. fired back at Saunders, saying the 20-somethings were trying their best to win.

Ty Dillon, Matt DiBenedetto, Ryan Newman, Austin Dillon and Alex Bowman completed the first 10 finishers. Survival was the key component for success and those that were able to avoid the many melees had a shot to win as Jones proved.

Truex finished second, followed by AJ Allmendinger, Kasey Kahne and Chris Buescher.

After winning the first two stages, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was involved in three accidents, with Kyle Larson with 37 laps to go, a single-car spin with 11 laps to go and the wreck on the first overtime restart.

Others said they committed serious crimes and anxious that the pardons might prompt other actions involving public lands. Hogan sentenced Dwight Hammond to three months in prison and Steven Hammond to a year and one day.

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.

"It's aggressive speedway racing", Stenhouse said. "He's a good kid. That's my fault. I'll take the credit for my team, and we'll go to Talladega and we'll wreck everybody that throws a bad block like that". So happy for him, happy for his family and his fans. I don't think I have finished this race in 10 years.

Chevrolet extended its winless streak to 18 races, its longest since a 31-race drought in 1981-82. It's been a tradition for each Daytona 500 champ since 1996. Those are the kinds of things that get other drivers heated, potentially even to the point where they want to start throwing punches.

"I didn't give him anything", Truex Jr. said of Jones. He just hit from behind me.

Brehanna Daniels and Breanna O'Leary worked as tire changers for Rick Ware Racing driver Ray Black Jr. Thanks to a push from Chris Buescher, Jones was able to get ahead of Truex Jr. and stretched the advantage to a couple of auto lengths as the field raced through Turns 3 and 4. That spill took out Aric Almirola, among others.

O'Leary and Daniels, roommates in North Carolina, are the fifth and sixth female NASCAR Drive for Diversity crew members to reach the Cup series.
