A black-flag for passing too early cost David Ragan the Daytona 500. Four months later, he returns to the track and faces a similar situation. Did he learn his lesson?
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has the answer and the changing Sprint Cup standings in this “FOX in the Fast Lane”…
Another late-race restart at Daytona meant a chance at redemption for David Ragan…and he took it. With teammate Matt Kenseth pushing him, Ragan cruised through a second green-white flag restart, claiming his first Sprint Cup victory with the Coke Zero 400…
“Well, I’m just proud. A lot of fun times to celebrate this July 4th weekend. Thanks to all the veterans back home.”
A 15-car wreck on the first overtime restart triggered the second go-round, which also finished with a 15-car accident in the final turn. Joey Logano finished third, followed by Kasey Kahne and Kyle Busch.
The race shakes up the Sprint Cup standings. Carl Edwards spun out and finished 37th, costing him the top spot in the Cup. Kevin Harvick now leads, followed by Edwards, Kurt Busch and Kyle Busch. Just 16 points separates first from fourth, setting up an interesting summer which continues next Saturday night with the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky.
