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.

That Jones Boy got it done tonight at ol' Daytona! "It's our first win and not much has felt better than this one".

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.

Ty Dillon, Matt DiBenedetto, Ryan Newman, Austin Dillon and Alex Bowman completed the first 10 finishers. He led one lap, the final circuit. Qualifying consisted of just two rounds, with the cut after the first round set with the top 12.

Still, Stenhouse managed to lead 51 laps during the race - more than twice as many as any other driver. That wreck provided the coup de grace for Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Jimmie Johnson and Trevor Bayne.

Kyle Larson spun sideways coming out of Turn 4 because of a flat tire, and Stenhouse slammed into him.

Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson was leading when the wreck happened, but was penalized one lap for pitting outside his box during a stop a few laps earlier. He was penalized a lap, drawing a complaint from crew chief Chad Knaus.

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.

Stenhouse tapped Kyle Busch and caused him to lose control.
