Erik Jones wins terrifically terrible Busch Clash at Daytona

Yesterday’s Busch Clash was a ginormous waste of time to watch. Single-car trains dominated the first 90 percent of the race. Once the field compacted, the garbage compactor started consuming its waste.

Was the race worth anything to anyone? Besides teams gathering data, it was nothing short of a catastrophe. Erik Jones’ win was the epitome of the way the race went. Jones should not have been in contention for the win, since six of 18 drivers finished, all he needed was help. He got it from defending Daytona 500 Champion Denny Hamlin, by way of tandem draft.

NASCAR needs to re-evaluate its format for the race or the lore around the race will die out.
