Ugly day in Daytona for Haley's first victory

Ugly day in Daytona for Haley's first victory”

Logano's Ford led 37 laps to win the first stage, while Austin Dillon led 40 more and won the second stage in a Richard Childress Racing Chevy.

Busch finished 10th in the rain-shortened Cup race after his team and others decided to make a pit stop from the lead under caution on Lap 127, thinking the race would resume on the ensuing lap.

"I guess he didn't want me to pass him", Bowyer said of Dillon. "I was being aggressive and trying to keep the lead". The red flag remained for more than two hours, and Justin Haley was declared the victor of his first career Cup race.

"I was really focused on the Xfinity race".

Busch relinquished the lead because he thought the race was one lap away from resuming, and Xfinity Series regular Haley cycled into the lead. "That's just part of racing like this". Haley assumed the lead at that point, but clearly would have been a sitting duck with far more experienced drivers - many with fresher tyres - restarting behind him. "This is only my third Cup start ever", Haley said once the race was called.

"Honestly for us, it doesn't matter how we got it; a top 10 is huge for our team and for Front Row Motorsports, any top 10 is awesome", said Tifft.

"I would have liked to go back racing and win it the way I wanted to, but our team did a great job this week managing all the chaos ... and finishing second with a back-up vehicle is pretty good".

"That would feel really good for some people on Twitter", he said. Even though the inclement weather passed, the delay was long enough that there wasn't enough time to squeeze in Cup qualifying before second-tier Xfinity Series events.

Clint Bowyer (14), Alex Bowman (88), Kyle Busch (18), Kyle Larson (42), Ryan Preece (47), Martin Truex Jr.

At just 20 years, two months, Haley is is the third youngest driver to win a race at Daytona.
