Johnson triggers wreck, wins Clash at Daytona

Hendrick's Byron wins Daytona 500 pole

Over the weekend, William Byron earned his first career NASCAR Cup Series pole for next Sunday's Daytona 500.

There was about a 10-minute delay for the first red flag as they went back to racing.

For Johnson, the seven-time champion was paired with rookie Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series crew chief Kevin Meendering.

Byron's run also resulted in the seventh straight Daytona 500 pole for a Chevrolet, dating to Danica Patrick's historic qualifying run in 2013. "It's not a points race but it's a good start". He still believes that with hard work and the right people, a team can step back and admire a glistening race auto, confident that girl is a victor. "The odds of making the Daytona 500 did not seem reasonable enough to stretch our resources, so the team feels that our assets can best be put towards a future race".

"I thought the Chevy was real fast", Byron said. "Cars drove well, communication has been well". The personal side, we've been great friends for a long time. "Wish we could have got the pole, but nonetheless, it was a great effort by our team, and everything has been smooth".

Of course, every year we get done with The Clash and try to extrapolate a conclusion in advance of the 500 and the conditions just aren't the same. A few hours later, Johnson finally won a race after none last season. One other note is that I would recommend only playing GPPs this week with maybe a small dip into the cash contest pool.

"It just shows how well everyone is working together", Bowman said.

Vardy was introduced as a substitute after the spot-kick had been awarded and immediately took it with his very first touch of the match.

The pole was the fifth consecutive in "The Great American Race" for Hendrick Motorsports and the 700th for Chevrolet.

To be eligible, drivers must meet one of five criteria: past Daytona 500 winners and past Daytona 500 pole winners who raced full-time last season, previous Clash winners who raced full-time a year ago, pole winners from last season and drivers who qualified for the playoffs in 2018. For Chad Knaus, this veteran crew chief knows the importance of starting a new season (and a new relationship) with field-leading speed.

The race only featured 20 cars and was shortened due to rain.

"The Clash is one of those things that I think we could probably eliminate as we go forward and look at the new schedule", Harvick said. "I'm ready to get more of this". "So it's kind of cool", he said.

"I'm not really sure, I have to see a replay". You know, a lot of you people were here back in the No. 24 days, in its youth.

Not unlike the 2018 Daytona 500, the victor of The Clash earned that distinction by wrecking the leader on what proved to be the final lap of the race.
