Pushed by teammate Denny Hamlin across the line, Erik Jones finally brought an end to a carnage-filled Clash. Opening the NASCAR season at Daytona, the race wasn't lacking for excitement, with late-race crashes leaving only six of the eighteen starters running at the end.

The race started off mostly clean for about the first 65 laps, but then the aggression increased. Logano and Busch got into each other and collected Logano's teammate Brad Keselowski, taking him out of the race. Following the wreck, Brad said he was angry at the "dumb, dumb racing... just dumb moves being thrown out there" and especially at his teammate for taking out his car, the fastest Ford, and removing the Blue Oval's hopes for victory.

Just as the race was about to go green, Ryan Newman triggered another multicar pileup, with only three cars managing to get through unscathed. That put the race into overtime. The field couldn't get through a full lap of it, though, a second attempt brought the six remaining cars across the line with Hamlin pushing the slower Jones to victory.

It's an exciting start to the 2020 NASCAR season. Hopefully the rest of the races can live up to the Clash.
