NASCAR Show: Talking Daytona 500 Qualifying and the Clash at Daytona


After a ten-minute delay, the race was once again underway as Denny Hamlin took the lead.

The seven-time Cup Series champion failed to win a race last season for the first time in his career but a dose of aggression put him back in victory lane in the first weekend of Speedweeks.

Here are the full race results of the 2019 Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona International Speedway.

Despite it being a win, it doesn't have the same feel for Jimmie as a points race Cup win.

"As we talk about money and saving team owners money, Joe Gibbs wrecked five cars", said Harvick, who crashed in Clash practice and then again at the end of the race. "We kind of got a warm-up last week when we tested in Vegas, so that was big for our communication and helped us tremendously". It was a really humbling experience to win at Daytona. "Cars drove well, communication has been well".

"We would not be sitting at this table and making this announcement had we not been a NASCAR property", Drager said. "Wish we could have got the pole, but nonetheless, it was a great effort by our team, and everything has been smooth".

Obaika Racing made its Cup Series debut at Texas Motor Speedway last year, the third-to-last race of the season, and competed in the final three races of the year, the last two of those with Berryhill as driver.

Johnson called the invocation "cute to hear".

With this in mind, Meendering knows the HMS team is still a tight group of talent.

Kurt Busch drove a Ford past year with Stewart-Haas and now he's on the receiving end while driving a Chip Ganassi Chevrolet.

"It just drug Menard around with him, and that's some of the instability in the draft that these cars show", Busch said.

It was the seventh Clash victory for Hendrick Motorsports and Johnson's second. The drivers qualified for the race by being pole sitters from 2018, former Clash winners, former Daytona 500 winners, and drivers that qualified for the playoffs in 2018 that didn't already qualify in another way. For Chad Knaus, this veteran crew chief knows the importance of starting a new season (and a new relationship) with field-leading speed. "The thing that I think a lot of people don't understand is... yes, we have a very fast racecar". "Maybe you take two positions in the All-Star Race because you're always on the edge of, 'Is that enough cars?" That's a big thing to being able to go to the racetrack and execute. "I've got a lot of respect for him but we come to these plate tracks and he causes at least one wreck at every plate track".
