Daytona Xfinity finish closest in NASCAR history

Five-overtime Xfinity Series race leads to closest finish in NASCAR history

Chase Elliott's No. 88 Chevy tapped Sadler's No. 1 Chevy sending him spinning and bringing out the eighth caution of the day and extending the race into overtime. In his first season in retirement from full-time racing, Earnhardt's presence is still strong through his race team. The finish was so close, the NASCAR scoring monitor inside the media center was unable to register the interval.

Daniel Hemric laid down a blistering lap to win the NASCAR Daytona XFINITY Series pole.

"This feels absolutely incredible", said Reddick, who won the 2015 Truck Series opener at Daytona. "But I still thought we were really at the line, which we were". JR Motorsports' top qualifier was Justin Allgaier.

The five overtimes came after a relatively clean first two stages to the race.

This one took five overtimes and a photo finish to decide.

Larson led a race-high 61 laps.

Kyle Larson (188.980 mph) will join Hemric on the front row.

A fifth overtime ensued when Dylan Lupton crashed down the backstretch in his No. 28 JGL Racing Ford.

NASCAR's national touring series encompass the Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Truck Series.

It wasn't a W, but it was an impressive performance in an equally exciting race for a young driver who hasn't run in the Xfinity Series since 2015.

The wreck also took out Christopher Bell. You hope for everything to work out the best in that situation, but we know it doesn't always work out that way. "We tested at Atlanta and it's one of my favorite race tracks so I am excited to get there". Unfortunately, he did not have enough owner points to get into the race.
