Jones Wins First NASCAR Race

In NASCAR, though, the only thing that matters is who crosses the finish line.

The victory was the first Cup win for the 22-year-old Jones, a driver nurtured by Toyota's motorsports program and one of the leading representatives of the young group of drivers expected to gain traction over the next few years.

"No, it's aggressive speedway racing", Stenhouse said.

Stage One: Polesitter #9 Chase Elliott was able to lead the first 10 laps until #17 Ricky Stenhouse Jr traded the lead between himself and Elliott for a couple laps before leading the rest of the stage and capturing his first stage win of the year.

India won the toss and elected to bowl in the opening one-day worldwide against England at Trent Bridge on Thursday. Dawid Malan was recently called up as cover for the injured Tom Curran for the first T20I game against India .

STENHOUSE, AGAIN: Ricky Stenhouse Jr., the focus of much of the evening's caution activity, caused the eighth caution with 11 laps to go when damage on his auto caused a tire rub and eventually a tire failure.

AJ Allmendinger finished third, followed by Kasey Kahne, Chris Buescher and Ty Dillon. "If he would've hit me, I would've tried to move or save it, but I never got hit". My first Cup win, my first win at Daytona, my first superspeedway win.

Erik Jones survived several gnarly wrecks, defending Cup Series champion Martin Truex Jr. on his bumper late and the pressure of overtime at NASCAR's most famous track. The American automaker hasn't been to victory lane since and hadn't really gotten close to a checkered. However, he was not able to hold on to the lead he held at the start of the first overtime.

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.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. got caught in a wreck after causing two earlier at Daytona.

Although it was a relatively early point in the race, Lap 53 proved to be one of the defining moments of the night.

Stenhouse tapped Kyle Busch and caused him to lose control. Keselowski's No. 2 Ford slammed into the side of Busch, and more than a dozen cars were unable to slow down. Keselowski had a push from Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at the time and had nowhere to go.

Twenty of the 40 cars were eliminated by accidents in Saturday's race. I've got to get better at my mirror-driving. I thought we were out of it and all of a sudden we were right back in it, take the lead and ran away.

"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 auto in front of me just threw a late, bad block, Keselowski said". He's worked hard. I don't know the repercussions of him winning here, what they're going to be. And it was my fault because I lifted.

That affected some of the top contenders, like Brad Keselowski, Kurt Busch and Denny Hamlin.
