Erik Jones

Erik Jones came away with a win Saturday in a wreck-filled Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

Jones past Martin Truex Jr.—who finished in second — on the final lap to take the lead. AJ Allmendinger placed third.

The victory was Jones’ first ever in the Cup series.

There were 10 total cautions during the race and multiple top competitors were involved in crashes. Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin were all knocked out after a pileup during the 54th lap.

Kyle Busch and William Byron — who held the lead for 11 laps — were eliminated in another wreck less than 12 laps later.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. led 51 laps and won the first two stages of the race. But, with 36 laps to go, he and Kyle Larson were involved in a collision.

The race was forced into two overtimes after a pair of crashes just before the finish.

Kasey Kahne and Chris Buescher finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
