Jones Wins First NASCAR Race

Martin Truex Jr. qualified 13th and will start on the inside of Row 7 for Saturday night's Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway. Then Willam Byron would overtake the lead on the ensuing lap.

"That was something else, man". "I didn't think we were going to have a shot to win this one about halfway". It was Stenhouse's first stage win of the year. "What an awesome day".

AJ Allmendinger was third, with Kasey Kahne and Chris Buescher rounding out the top five.

"I didn't give him anything", Truex Jr. said of Jones. Ty Dillon was sixth, followed by Matt DiBenedetto and Daytona 500 champion Austin Dillon.

STAGE ONE: Stenhouse dominated the race's first stage and edged Kyle Busch for the stage win.

He likely didn't earn a lot of fans on social media or from his fellow competitors in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garage.

How Jones Won: He was in position on the second overtime restart to get to the front and took advantage of the opportunity.

Brett Kavanaugh: Everything you need to know about Trump's Supreme Court pick
Those Trump-voting states are all home to Democratic senators who will face intense pressure to support the President's nominee. However, Trump told Fox Business Network he would "probably not" ask candidates specifically about the case.

Asked why there seemed to be so many wrecks happening at the front of the field Saturday night, Stenhouse said, "You try to be so aggressive to stay up front". As the checkered flag waved, Jones had enough of a margin to take his first career victory. There were also two more major wrecks before the race was sent to overtime. "I'm just here praying for a top-10 and some stage points".

KENNINGTON SPINS: D.J. Kennington, who ran as high as second after much of the field was pounded in accidents, caused the night's seventh caution with a spin with 27 laps to go.

Byron, who was knocked out 11 laps after Keselowski, responded to Keselowski's comments, claiming the wreck was more of Stenhouse's fault than his own. Following in the top 10 were Kyle Larson, Byron, Chase Elliott, Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman, Keselowski, Austin Dillon and Alex Bowman. The first occurred on lap 157 involving Jimmie Johnson, Aric Almirola, Joey Gase and Michael McDowell.

At the end of a week in which talk of younger drivers needing to show force in NASCAR racing edged into the conversation, one did.

In fact, he went as far as saying that he "should have wrecked" William Byron, who used unsafe blocking maneuvers that collected several cars in one of the crashes. Keselowski's No. 2 Ford slammed into the side of Busch, and more than a dozen cars were unable to slow down.

The win comes in Joe Gibbs Racing driver's 57th career start.

Because the race featured so many wrecks, only 13 cars finished on the lead lap, and may drivers recorded their best finish of the season.
