    Lap 146: RJ Bishop gets the field back up to speed but off turn 2 we go 3 wide for the lead! Peterson to the middle but it's Tim Johnston with help from Tim Kunkel on the inside that will take over the lead into turn 3.

    Lap 147: Kunkel tucked up behind the 81 into turn 1 and now ducks to his inside for the lead. Caudill pulls up behind the 15 and will shove Kunkel to the lead off turn 2. Johnston fights back and will clear the 7 and be able to slot in behind the 15 in 2nd.

    Lap 148: A mirror move for the 81 of Johnston into turn 1. He moves low on Kunkel on corner entry and again it's the 7 of Caudill with the push to put Johnston back into the lead. Dan Busch and Jon Peterson right there as well looking for an opening.

    Lap 149: Dan Busch bullys his way to 2nd now and has the 74 and 46 all over his rear bumper as we will be coming around to see the white flag. Blanford now gets a shove from Farrell and they will move up to 2nd and 3rd behind the 81 of Johnston. Bleskachek now 4th in line on the inside as the top line starts to fall apart and Busch fades back.

    Lap 150: White flag in the air for Tim Johnston! Bobby Farrell makes his move for 2nd coming to the line and Blanford will get left out to dry in the outside lane as the field lines up to make their final moves.

    [​IMG]


    Into turn 1 and it's Bleskachek in 3rd that makes his move first ducking to the inside of Farrell for 2nd. He'll get help from the 11 of Hawkins as Busch moves up to try and get with the 46 of Farrell. Off turn 2 and Johnston has a slight edge over Bleskachek. Down the backstretch and into turn 3 the 60 isn't closing quick enough. Johnston defends the inside line through 3 and off turn 4. Bleskachek unable to make a move and it will be the 81 of Tim Johnston taking the win in Daytona!

    Johnston wins and is the first driver to punch his ticket to the playoffs. Bleskachek leaves Daytona the points leader with a 2nd place in stage 1, stage 2, and at the end of the race.

    Pretty happy with where we got this weekend! To start the week feeling sick and missing qualifying to moving through the field and leading laps.

    Solid points day. Great start to the season.

    "Got a top 5 today but not what we wanted. We had our JEGS Chevy Camaro in a great position on that final restart and I was able to make some moves to almost get to the front but the car pushed off the bottom at the exit of turn 4 coming to the white when we were in second and I had no chance after that. Great effort by all the guys on the team and back at the shop. Not what we wanted but on to Cali."

    77: F&*k man, we had one hell of a FedEx Camry. I just want to thank the SMR bois for a fricken bullet for todays race. I just hate it for the guys that we weren't able to produce the win that I thought that we could have gotten.

    Fiorentini: "Not the result we wanted, but I'll take having at least finished my first Cup race. We never came even close to having the best car during the race and that hurt our ability to make moves, especially at the front, since everytime we were close to the lead, there would be at least one dominant car to shuffle us back. The experience gained is vital, though, and will certainly help us, especially me, next week at Auto Club."

    “Geez.. not a good day for this Opp group. Our Patagonia Mustang was fast early in the week, we got the pole and that was basically all we had. One second we’re in the middle of the pack fighting and the next we’re a lap down.. and at a place like this without the lucky dog you’re done at that point... I mean, all four of our cars 15th or worse, we’ve got some work to do.”

    Anthony Curtain: "Not at all the way we wanted to start the season, but sometimes things don't go your way. But congrats to Tim and Ryan. It's cool to see a Bleskachek Motorsports top 2 sweep...I just wish I could've been there to make it a podium sweep."

    "All three cars in the top 10, one of which having led the most laps in the race, and another making that top 10 a top 5 to boot! While it isn't a win, I'd still call that a successful trip to Daytona!"

    "Well, at least we brought the car home. Its a shame that we don't bring home any extra stage points and I might be playing too safe in the #55 Toei Animation Camaro, but sometimes you got to play safe in superspeedway racing. I made quite a lot of mess in the Truck Series race several days ago and I think that got into me mentally as I think I drove too cautiously trying to not get involved in incidents for the Cup race. Shame that we at Harris Motorsports have a bad season opening race but oh well, that's what it is, onto the next race."
