It was a hot night at Daytona International Speedway. Not just talking about the temperatures, but the action on the speedway as well.
It had been a long time coming. Finally an exciting race! Last evening’s Jalapeno 250 produced a record 42 lead changes, an increase over last year’s lead changes, which was 36.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. pushed the James Finch bright orange No. 1 Chevy to the checkered flag in a wild race that ended with Austin Dillon wrecking in the tri-oval as Busch crossed the finish line.
“You want to put James Finch in Victory Lane,” stated Busch. “That’s what he’s all about.”
Busch had stated in his post-race interview that Finch wanted his car bright orange Chevy, nicknamed “great pumpkin,” so sponsors can see his car run upfront.
Congratulations to Kurt Busch and Phoenix Racing.
