The nascar cup series continues the 2021 season in daytona for the go bowling 235 on the road course chase. Elliott and michael mcdowell lead the field to green as they dive into the heavy breaking zone of turn number one, but mcdowell goes wide after the first turn. He has to rejoin the track and his problems wouldn’t end. There he’d find his way off into the grass and heavy into the braking zone, but he wouldn’t be the only one with lap one issues. Kyle bush would damage early. As you can see the fender there does have some heavy damage. They would have to tape that up and continue on throughout the race. Malheureusement, pour le 34, his problems would not end there as he would lose a tire leave some debris on the track, and that would cause the first yellow of the day. Brad keselowski would run into some issues multiple times. He would lock it up going into that last chicane he would blow through it have to come to a complete stop and he would also do the same in the back bus stop. He would go way too heavy to the braking zone and lose lots of track position could chase go for five in a row. Certainly looked like that in the beginning, the number nine had such a fast car maneuvering his way through the many turns, and he would win stage number one. Our first major incident on lap 28 occurs when ross chastain gets the boot from ryan blaney from behind sending him up into the wall, and he gets major damage on that.
Mcdonald’S chevy, fortunately not getting a great finish here on the day and the stage number two sees denny hamlin get the win. He would gain another playoff point after leading much of the second stage. Kurt busch found his way to the front, but he also found his way off track sliding through the grass trying to find his way to a stop and not rip up that splitter. He would spin just before re entering the track there, comme vous pouvez le voir, kicking up a lot of dirt lots of grass, fortunately not much damage, though on his monster energy chevrolet.

Dismay chase elliott in the mid pack comes off the course sliding through the grass trying to make sure he can keep it straight. Does an amazing job, saving it but loses a lot of positions in the process. Kyle larson looking to make a pass for second catch up to joey logano, but he slides wide into the tire barrier. And now it caused some major damage and put him back in the pack. And that would let joey logano run away with the lead. With a few fast cars behind him, lap number 62 sees chase elliott running towards the front making of those positions, but he spins off the nose of the number 11.
that essentially takes the number nine out of contention. So who would it be? The number 20 of christopher bell catching joey logano, but would he have enough time? The number 20 looks to the outside goes to make a pass. He gets enough of a run, makes his way through the chicane and he passes joey logano to take the white flag and he would come all the way back around and earn his first win in the nascar cup series.
