Trio Of Big Crashes Eliminate Several NextEra Energy Resources 250 Contenders

The NextEra 250 Energy Resources 250 should have been long over, but the race has been extended by three accidents.

The first erupted after Dusty Davis turned Parker Kligerman, collecting Brian Silas and outhers. That set up a green-white-checkered. In turn four of that restart, Brad Keselowski was turned under several trucks, collecting Rick Crawford and Stockbridge's Max Gresham.

The restart from that accident saw Johnny Sauter leading ahead of Red Horse Racing teammates John King and Todd Bodine. King hooked into the right rear corner of Sauter's Toyota, turning the leader head on into the wall and drawing yet another caution flag. Sauter was collected hard by teammate Matt Crafton, with Brendan Gaughan, David Starr, and Georgian Ryan Sieg becoming involved, among others.

As the field sits under the red flag, one more attempt at a green-white-checkered finish remains. Bodine holds the lead ahead of another teammate in Timothy Peters and King. Bodine is the only two-time event champion and is seeking to become the undisputed king of Camping World Truck Series racing at Daytona International Speedway.
