2014 Daytona II (Coke Zero 400): Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Recap


Team Chevy’s Kurt Busch was looking for his second win of the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and first restrictor plate win at the rain delayed Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday when the skies opened up again and dashed his hopes. The wet and wild race was postponed due to inclement weather on Saturday and continued to be plagued throughout the day Sunday with showers and two major multi-car crashes. Busch, driver of the No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet SS, had to settle for a third place finish when the race was finally called at lap 112 of 160 originally scheduled laps.

"We led a lot of laps today with our Haas Automation Chevy, it’s a tough pill to swallow because we want to go back out there and race," said Busch following the race. "There is still plenty of daylight left and there are lights here at this track. I’m disappointed because we want to go for the win. At the same time this team has turned a good corner it’s been about five weeks in a row now that we have been in the top 15. We cashed in on a top-five finish today."

Casey Mears came home with his first top-five finish of the 2014 season by bringing his No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS home in fourth place. It was also his first top 10 finish since the season-opening Daytona 500. Like Mears, Austin Dillon notched his first top-five finish in the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops/NRA Museum Chevrolet SS in fifth place, giving him the honor of being the highest finishing rookie of the year contender.

Danica Patrick, No. 10 Florida Lottery/GoDaddy Chevorlet SS, earned her second best finish of the season by coming home eighth. It was also her second top 10 finish of 2014. Patrick moved up one spot to 27th in the standings.

Series point leader Jeff Gordon rebounded from an early incident to finish 12th in his No. 24 Pepsi Real Sugar Chevrolet SS. Gordon maintained the lead with a 27 point advantage over Hendrick Motorsports teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr., who gained one spot in the standings by bringing his No. 88 National Guard Chevy SS home in 14th place. Jimmie Johnson, who was sidelined by an early multi-car crash in his No. 48 Lowe’s Patriotic Chevrolet SS, dropped to third in the point standings with his 42nd place finish.

Aric Almirola (Ford) was the race winner and Brian Vickers (Toyota) was second to round out the top five finishers.

Next weekend, the NASCAR Sprint Cup series will head to New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The Camping World RV Sales 301 will begin Sunday, July 13th at 1 pm, ET.
