Jones snatches dramatic win in crash-filled Daytona race

Jun 30 2018 Joliet IL USA NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson during practice for the Overton's 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. Mand

Jones joins a list of many drivers who got their first win in this race. "What an awesome day". My first Cup win, my first win at Daytona, my first superspeedway win. "It's our first win and not much has felt better than this one".

That ended in a flash as Jones wrote a fairy tale finish to a crash-filled night by zipping past reigning series champion Martin Truex Jr., his former teammate at Furniture Row Racing, for the lead on the last lap of the second overtime. Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. made contact with Clint Bowyer, who spun and collected Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Trevor Bayne and Ross Chastain. Then Willam Byron would overtake the lead on the ensuing lap.

"It was a lot of hard work to be here", he said of Victory Lane.

Truex lapped the 2.5-mile tri-oval in 47.069 seconds at 191.209 miles per hour.

China vows to 'fight back' after U.S. threaten $200bn tariffs on goods
China gave no details, but it has plenty of options to retaliate that could extend beyond additional tariffs on USA imports. The USTR said the latest action was in response to Beijing's failure to change its policies and its retaliatory duties.

AJ Allmendinger finished third, followed by Kasey Kahne, Chris Buescher and Ty Dillon. "That's my fault. I'll take the credit for my team, and we'll go to Talladega and we'll wreck everybody that throws a bad block like that". That spill took out Aric Almirola, among others.

"It was okay, I think - you never know what you're going to get here", said Truex.

Only nine races remain in the regular season.

Stenhouse finished 17th in the race and is 19 points out of the final playoff spot.

Shark bites University of Miami student in Bahamas
An Instagram model has been bitten by a shark whilst trying to get a picture with them, floating in a marina. Zarutskie knows it could have been worse. "I've been on so many different medications", she told WSVN-Ch.

Stage One: Polesitter #9 Chase Elliott was able to lead the first 10 laps until #17 Ricky Stenhouse Jr traded the lead between himself and Elliott for a couple laps before leading the rest of the stage and capturing his first stage win of the year.

Still, Stenhouse managed to lead 51 laps during the race - more than twice as many as any other driver.

"The 2 got wrecked and so did everyone else", Hamlin said.

JOHNSON PENALIZED: Jimmie Johnson, seeking to end a 40-race winless streak, was running up front with 40 laps to go when his crew serviced the auto outside its pit box. He pitted outside the designated box, and finished 23rd.

Roger Federer knocked out of Wimbledon 2018 after quarter-final loss
But Federer went toe to toe with his buoyant opponent in an epic fifth-set tussle until with the score 11-11 Anderson pounced. Federer seemed to be heading for a routine victory with match point to complete a straights set win in the third.

Stenhouse remains 16th in the series standings. Larson, coming off a second-place finish last weekend at Chicagoland, exited with a torn-up tire and a visit to the medical center. Keselowski's No. 2 Ford slammed into the side of Busch, and more than a dozen cars were unable to slow down. It also saw the first career victories of one of NASCAR's new and young faces of the sport. Stenhouse bumped Kyle Busch and sent the No. 18 Toyota into the wall. "It usually happens much later in the night". He hasn't won since that season-opening victory.
