That put the race into what NASCAR calls overtime because it couldn't end under caution.
For Jones, a 22-year-old MI native driving in his first season for Joe Gibbs Racing, the breakthrough victory came in his 57th career start. "What a day", Jones said. "He got to my right rear quarter - just barely - enough to slow me down off of 2, and then the race was on from there". Got ourselves back into contention, and our guys did a great job getting this thing fixed up and getting the buyatoyota.com into victory lane. I've got to get better at my mirror-driving.

STAGE 2 WINNER: Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
THE SECOND BIG ONE: The night's second major crash occurred on lap 65.
After rookie William Byron took the lead, a wreck on the 57th didn't impact the front group. The wreck occurred on lap 54 after contact between Brad Keselowski and Stenhouse near the front of the pack.
Keselowski blamed leader William Byron for the crash, pointing out that a Byron blocking move forced the issue.
"He got hit from behind, so I didn't get hit anywhere", Byron said. And it was my fault because I lifted. "I've never really been good at that, and unfortunately, that's part of this racing here, but I'm really proud to get to the end".
"I should have wrecked him and sent a message to the whole field".
After winning the first two stages, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was involved in three accidents, with Kyle Larson with 37 laps to go, a single-car spin with 11 laps to go and the wreck on the first overtime restart.
