Jimmie Johnson wrecks then wins rain-shorted Daytona Clash

Jimmie Johnson ended his streak of wrecking out of the Daytona Clash but not wrecking in the race.

Running second behind leader Paul Menard on Lap 57 of the scheduled 75, Johnson moved to the inside in an attempt to pass just as Menard appeared to begin a move to block.

The two made contact, with Menard spinning and hitting the wall and the chain reaction collected all but a handful of the entire 20-car field.

Shortly after the incident and before the race could return to green, heavy rain covered the track again and brought an early end to the race.

“It was really just a racing thing,” Johnson said. “I was going down into Turn 1 and it was looking darker and darker. I saw my move and I had to take it.”

The win was Johnson’s first victory in over a year of any kind, although it doesn’t count in the Cup series standings. Earlier in the day Johnson’s teammate, William Byron, won the pole for next weekend’s Daytona 500.
