Had Cassill not come into the pits from second place before the anticipated but waved-off restart, he would have been the winner. Hamlin will go for his second straight Daytona 500 win next weekend, fortunately competing in a non-damaged car. His chance to win ended late in the race when a flat tire spun him out. Keselowski led for most of the race (33 laps of the 64 he ran), but his No. 2 car was caught up in the first wreck sparked by Busch and Logano. He only led the last lap. “As soon as we strap into our cars and we go green, on the first lap or two get a feel for our cars, then it will be business as usual. Now, nearly four years later and fully healthy, the 59-year-old brother of NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace and Kenny Wallace hopes to finish some of that business in the 2019 season with Rick Ware Racing. After the sponsor was removed, he thought his stock car racing career had come to a close.
“There are a lot of guys that have five, six wins and a lot of bonus points that are going to roll over to that next stage; so anything we can do to close the gap on that … It sparked a debate on NASCAR Twitter about whether iRacing drivers are deserving of attention commensurate with real-life stars. While winning in Late Models on short tracks around the Southeast in the early 2000s, Hamlin also was an iRacing stalwart who caught the eye of Dale Earnhardt Jr. (who invited Hamlin to Daytona after competing against him online). In 2019, Chastain competed for the Gander Trucks title - winning three races and finishing second in the standings. “You’ve got to conform or die,” he said, noting he built friendships with iRacing contenders Ray Alfalla and Logan Clampitt by answering their questions about his races via direct messages on Twitter. During his 2006 rookie season in Cup, Hamlin said it was a “huge benefit” to use iRacing as an introduction to tracks he hadn’t raced in real life.

Both his victories came in the 2017 season at Daytona and Talladega, placing a career-best 13th in the championship standings. As with Johnson, the Chip Ganassi Racing driver Larson is still looking for his first win of the 2019 season, but his runner-up finish at Chicago was good enough to move him up two positions in the standings. Joe Gibbs Racing driver Erik Jones finished in first place following a series of late-lap crashes that left only six cars running for the final flag. Two crashes occurred in the final nine laps to send the race to overtime. JGR teammate Denny Hamlin was able to push Jones to victory in the final two laps after three overtime restarts. Ragan hasn’t competed in a NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race since 2006 but has plenty of experience across the sport’s top three series, including 23 combined starts at Atlanta. “(This is the) craziest race I’ve ever been in,” Jones told The Athletic. This is the ninth Busch Clash win for JGR and the first for Jones.
Jones wrecked on the restart with four laps to go, so the crumpled car needed a boost to get to the finish. Getting off to a good start would provide a boost of confidence and momentum for the team. Despite a last-place start and multiple wrecks, Hamlin was able to secure a sixth place finish. Three-time Cup champ had been slated to make one-off start next month in Xfinity Series. UPDATE: Officials from Rick Ware Racing (RWR) confirmed today that NASCAR Next alumnus Cole Custer will make his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) debut March 2-4 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Defending NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series champion Brett Moffitt has a chance to accomplish something unique in the modern era of NASCAR racing. Next year, however, Hemric won't be driving in the Cup series, having been replaced in his RCR ride by two-time NASCAR Xfinity Series champion Tyler Reddick.
