Elliott wins Cup Series race at Daytona Road Course

Denny Hamlin would lead the opening laps of the race before being challenged by teammate Martin Truex. Contact between the two would force Hamlin to pit on lap 11 with a tire rub. Kyle Busch, another Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, would also have a tire issue early in the race after flat spotting his left front tire.

Chase Elliott benefited from some pit strategy of others who choose to pit prior to the end of stage one allowing him to win the opening stage and earn a playoff point. Hamlin would win the second stage of the race.

In the third stage Busch, who was running second at the time, would suffer a brake issue sending him behind the wall for repairs. He would return but would bring out a caution after blowing both rear tires with six laps to go.
