Thanks to pitting before a caution came out on Lap 70, Denny Hamlin finds himself leading at the halfway mark in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.
Green flag stops had begun at Lap 68, but two laps later, Joey Logano shot up into the wall between Turns 3 and 4 to bring out the second yellow of the evening. Race leader Jimmie Johnson and the rest of the front-runners had not yet pitted, causing a shakeup on the scoring pylon when they made their way down at Lap 71.
When the green returned at Lap 75, the Top 14 drivers – with Hamlin at the front – were those that had pitted before Logano’s incident.
Pole sitter Kyle Busch led the field through Lap 26 pit stops under a caution period (caused by Paul Menard‘s engine letting go) and maintained his edge off pit road, but on Lap 33, Johnson and Hendrick Motorsports teammate Kasey Kahne charged to the front.
That eventually led into the Hendrick duo pulling along a seven-car breakaway line on the low groove that included Jamie McMurray, Brad Keselowski, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and rookie pilot Ricky Stenhouse Jr. So far, the low line has appeared to be the stronger one tonight in contrast to this past February’s Daytona 500, which saw the high line emerge as the lane of choice.
