DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Communication was inherently inconvenient, because how often do these guys still speak? They compete in one series, but they certainly are not friends.
Yes, they could share the goal of the Daytona 500 victory, but the ways to achieve were quite different. It was clear the gun barrel of emotions could be triggered by the typically capricious chain of events being sent by a reboot at the Daytona International Speedway.
How strange it is instead turned off so well.
Who would have thought Chevrolet and Toyota would work harmoniously together on a Sunday?
<p type = "text" content = "Yes, it was one of the most delicious divisions emerging from the 61st Great American race that only two Ford Performance drivers were not happy to close the rounds of the biggest race of the season, when the words waved, the combination of Ford was the key to its success.

The fact that only two Ford Performance drivers have remained, have not been comfortably pleased in the last rounds of the biggest race of the season. Ford's unity has been the key to its success.
But while these passions broke up, a dishonest alliance between unlikely friends flourished.
Saturday morning at the meeting, Hendric Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing (with the help of Toyota Racing Development). A plan to combat 12 – by Ford motoring, which dominated Speedweeks (swinging by the three best players on Thursday) and a lot of competitions on the restraining plate over the past year.
Although some key players have refused to identify, it's not hard to look at the registries for Hendrick, JGR and Toyota and find some obvious issues. There are several names that worked in at least two or all three camps (in some cases).
And these precursors helped lay the foundations for Hendrick and Gibbs drivers together at Dayton 500 – even if it

It was a necessity.

But it seemed to work: Unlike Thursday's races and The Clash qualification (and many races on the plate last year) when Ford drivers seemed to be driving the project at will with long car lines, their Mustangs fleet could not be organized also on Sunday.
<p type = "text" Content = "In Stage 2, six wagons from three Toyotas (DiBenedetto, Busch, Jones) and three Chevys ( Alex Bowman Chase Elliott William Byron ) went for a long time on the pit stops to control the pace The packet was two to three tenths faster than the field and put some good cars down by knees. data-reactid = "40"> In the 2nd stage, a train of three cars Toyotas (DiBenedetto, Busch, Jones) and three Chevys (Alex Bowman, Chase Elliott, William Byron) went on for a long time at the pace-paced pace.

"We both realized that there are powers in the number of and the lack of both of our organizations, we were the manufacturer and they are only four of them, "said Hamlin. "It was hard for them to have enough Chevrolets that are competitive to go up and work with them, which was the best choice for us:" Look, we're not going to get out of our way to help each other, but we're not going to Re try to screw each other or "Work together with the strategy."
"They had a great strategic plan that worked until here and there did not fall several warnings. Of course, it was good to work with these guys and not only that it was There were all the drivers and crew leaders that I trusted, so when we made this p Llan together to work together I was sure that he would play well. "
The result was JGR Toyotas, who placed the second 1-2-3 team finish (Hamlin, Busch, Jones) in the history of Daytona 500 and the first of … Hendrick Motorsports in 1997 (Jeff Gordon, Terry Labonte, Ricky Craven)
It seems they had more in common than they did.

In the final race with plates used for 30 years to breathe down airflow to engines and reduce speeds at Daytona and Talladega Superspeedway (where cars are more prone to swim in the grandstands), there were three multicar pileups and two red flags in the last 20 rounds as world-class drivers made unelicably poor decisions and maneuvers. A 40 minute stop time helped provide a larger audience in the prime time, but also carried The last 15 laps lasted almost 90 minutes.
"I actually looked at the (clock) on the dash," Hamlin said sitting in his No. 11 during the first red. "It was 5:40 pm (evening) and I look at the scoreboard, and I, like, "Oh, at 6:15 we will know the end of this race." And I look, and I like: "At 6:30 we will find out the end of this race. We are sitting under the red flag and I just see that the ticker only goes, for example: "At 6:50 we really know who won this race."
"It was crazy for how long it lasted. I saw the circles an hour before, but the track was just an absolute mess.

But the biggest extraction from the final race of the blasting derby plate emphasized the inevitable chaos – but grossly dumb bugs – as the flagged flag is approaching.
"Quite a lot," Kyle Busch said when asking for a wreck-filled ending was inevitable after a relatively clean 475 miles ahead of it. "The brain comes to a standstill. This is it. Connecting the brain to the pedal for the gas pedal is no longer working the same way. There's a lot to give and take along the entire initial race, and then it comes to an end, and in some way there always is such caution within 30 or 40 to go, setting everyone on the road, and then chaos after that
Saying Logano: "Yes, you know that he will come, and especially this race, you know that on the line. This is Daytona 500. Nobody actually cares about the glasses or leave the playoffs. Everyone thinks I want to win the biggest race of the year. , and, as Kyle said, the brain comes to a standstill.
Yes, goodbye – or maybe well released for some – to the plate … but it's just a nominal change. With conical gaskets that are still used to hold power under control, it's likely that the race on Talladega Superspeedway will look familiar on April 28. And if not, NASCAR will tweak rules to ensure this (as was the case with tandem races in 2011).
Stuck with these parameters, it may be too much to ask NASCAR stars to be reminded that memories are being built on subordinate driving, and for the conditions that no one has suffered, it's probably better to have too many accidents, n is too low (based on the reaction odnofaylovi race that the Daytona common in the last 10 days).
Good if the end of the era of the plates is also put on a period of absurd testimony witnessed during the Crusade Sunday.
Some overly optimistic / questionable driver … big crashes … two red flags … equal to intermittent ends.
Still, it can be a memorable conclusion. #nascar

"In 10 years, I do not see any reason why we could not have six or seven manufacturers," Wilson said. – You look at sports races. With our Lexus program, we compete from seven to eight manufacturers. We compete in salons every day. Why can not this be the same on the racetrack?

Almost after that, something was considered a fair game. Were considered ideas that could carry warm weather or two until the end of January or early February, ahead of Daytona 500.
