Johnson wins, Byron gets pole in Daytona

Fellow HMS driver Alex Bowman also performed well in qualifying, scoring his second consecutive front-row start for the South Florida classic. "Maybe you take two positions in the All-Star Race because you're always on the edge of, 'Is that enough cars?"

Johnson got lucky as the bottom came out and they declared him the victor.

VALDOSTA -Due to a rain-delayed race, Jimmie Johnson won the Advanced Autoparts Clash after passing Paul Menard that resulted in "The Big One". While Johnson was able to keep stable and dive below the double-yellow line to avoid any potential wreck, Menard spun up the track, clipping Kyle Busch before collecting a wealth of cars.

Most cars in 2019 Clash wreck late in race.

The other incident that gave Johnson the victory was a huge crash that he triggered that affected nearly every auto in the race.

"When Jimmie pulled out, I moved down a little bit and the next thing I know I'm getting turned in the left rear", Menard said. "I had it kind of set-up down the backstretch a few laps prior to that, and then, my opportunity came along. I got turned to the inside and hooked to the right and all hell broke loose". "I don't know what triggered his vehicle wobbling and then the accident started from there".

But sources told CBS News they've seen security video of Smollett outdoors early Tuesday morning and " nothing of an assault ". Smollett was treated for minor injuries following the alleged attack after transporting himself to a local hospital.

Rain threatened the race throughout the day, and caused the race to be red-flagged three times throughout the afternoon.

The 2014 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion noted that the current Clash format is markedly different than the layout of the inaugural race back in 1979, which featured a slim, nine-driver field. Of the 20 drivers who started the race, 11 finished it and nine finished it on the lead lap.

Menard reclaimed the lead as Johnson caught up to him. He wound up 13th at the finish.

Busch said team owner Chip Ganassi complained to NASCAR about Johnson driving below the double-yellow line to make the move. In fact, not including Johnson's auto, only three other cars made it through this wreck unscathed. About twenty minutes later, the race resumed as Menard and the Team Penske trio of Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, and Ryan Blaney followed him behind.

It's a 75-lap exhibition race with a competition caution 25 laps in (unless a caution happens sooner) with 20 drivers in the field. Alex Bowman, No. 88 Chevrolet 6.

The Gander RV Duels are scheduled to start at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14, with TV coverage on Fox Sports 1, and the green flag for the Daytona 500 is set to fly at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 17, at 2:30 p.m., with TV coverage on FOX. Not every Cup series driver is eligible to compete in the Clash, though.
