Insane NASCAR crash triggers carnage at Daytona 500

Insane NASCAR crash triggers carnage at Daytona 500”

The 2018 season marked the first time in Denny Hamlin's 13-year career as a full-time NASCAR Cup Series driver that he failed to win a race.

Hamlin went on to score his second Daytona 500 victory in four years.

Hamlin had his choice of where to line up, having been in the lead at the time of the third and final wreck, and so the two struck up a deal: Busch would let Hamlin take the outside line (which Hamlin preferred), and then drop down in front of him on the bottom once he had the lead.

An impressive return from those games would bolster interim boss Solskjaer's long-term prospects at United but the Norwegian played down the significance of the next fortnight.

There was no shortage of chaos in the 2019 Daytona 500 with several big crashes, including a massive 18-car pileup with nine laps remaining in the race. For Hamlin's entire Cup Series career, he's boasted the No. 11-also J.D.'s number-on both doors, and on Sunday, he wore his friend's name on the side of the vehicle in remembrance of the 49-year-old who lost his life to a degenerative neurological disease.

For that first win 26 years ago, Gibbs said no one knew what they were supposed to do after the race. Duel winners Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano join Brad Keselowski as 8-1 co-favorites in the latest 2019 Daytona 500 odds. He also won it in 2016, while the team's first victory in the Great American Race - and first win for the team only in its second season - was back in 1993 with now-NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett. He lost his ride for Chip Ganassi Racing's Xfinity team following an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on the program's primary sponsor, DC Solar. And it was an emotional win.

"We just were fortunate to really be up front at the right time to avoid those", Hamlin said.

"The worst thing you want to do is put yourself in a bad position to have to bring a backup auto", Stewart, owner of Stewart-Hass Racing said. He actually led six of the 200 laps. He finished 22nd in his final race before retirement.

William Byron will start from the pole alongside Hendrick Motorsports teammate Alex Bowman. I think he was trying to sneak into my outside but wasn't quite there.

But more than any of that, this night was for the one man not here to enjoy it. "I'm going to have a bad hangover tomorrow, but I'm going to enjoy it the rest of my life".
