18 cars taken out in major wreck at Daytona 500

18 cars taken out in major wreck at Daytona 500

It was Hamlin's second Daytona 500 win in the last four years.

Kyle Busch finished second and Erik Jones was third as the Gibbs drivers held off Ford driver and reigning Nascar champion Joey Logano's frantic push in overtime.

With 10 laps to go in the race, 18 cars were involved in a massive wreck that caused a pileup and left multiple cars destroyed near the infield. Gibbs, Joe Gibbs' eldest son who died last month after battling a degenerative neurological disease.

There were a total of 10 lead changes across 179 laps this week at The Clash and two Daytona Duels on Thursday, but it will be tough for NASCAR to do anything significant to alter the single-file racing that was featured across the runs, according to NBC Sports. It brought out a red flag that stopped the race to clean up the wreck. "I just thank the Lord for letting us be a part of this". "We are desperately going to miss him for the rest of our lives, but his legacy still lives on through Joe Gibbs Racing and we're proud to do this for them".

Busch said Hamlin declined to work together on the next-to-last restart Sunday.

"I thought that was the best move for us. I don't want to tear this (car) up because I want to put it back in my house".

The native of Chesterfield, Virginia, who was sponsored by FedEx Express, was the 2016 Daytona 500 champion; he won what was the closest finish in race history, barely edging Martin Truex Jr.

The second race of the season comes at the Folds of Honor Quick Trip 500 on February 24 at 2 p.m.at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. "It's the most emotional, and the biggest, win I've ever had in my life in anything". William Byron is the Busch Pole victor; it's the first time that he has ever started a race from pole position.

Ty Dillon was sixth in the highest-finishing Chevrolet.

"You know, it is what it is". Ross Chastain, the eighth-generation watermelon farmer who lost his main ride for this year when the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided his sponsor right before Christmas, finished 10th.

Hendrick Motorsports swept the front row of Sunday's starting grid, with Byron on the pole and Alex Bowman on the outside of Row 1. Here are the non-formulated NASCAR Cup Series Driver Power Rankings with the first of 36 races on this year's schedule in the books.
