NASCAR Coke Zero 400 At Daytona Results: Georgia's David Ragan Wins

Sweet redemption!

After giving away a shot at winning the Daytona 500 with an improper lane change on the next-to-last restart in February, David Ragan has won his first Sprint Cup Series race, taking the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona.

Teammate Matt Kenseth was second, followed by Joey Logano, Kasey Kahne, and Kyle Busch.

There were two crashes on the final lap of the race, in the second green-white-checker period, but the race remained green to the finish line, with Ragan's No. 6 Ford crossing the line ahead of the field.

On the first green-white-checkered, Mark Martin and Joey Logano made contact, triggering a multi-car cras that collected many drivers who had contended throughout the night such as Martin Truex Jr., David Reutimann, and Clint Bowyer.

Ragan's win is the first for Atlanta-based UPS since Dale Jarrett's Talladega victory in 2005. It comes in his 163rd career start. There have been rumors and speculation abound about his future with the Roush-Fenway Racing organization, but he has had a solid season thus far and perhaps solidified his place with the team with his win tonight.
