Live updates from Coke Zero 400 NASCAR race, results at Daytona

Date:

It’s always the last few laps and the inevitable crashes at Daytona International Speedway that determine who gets the checkered flag.

But you have to race all 160 laps of the Coke Zero Sugar 400 (that’s miles) to get there. Sometimes you have a race that goes beyond that prescribed distance.

In 2021, the last few laps were actually overshadowed by overtime, and on the last lap of overtime, Ryan Blaney came out on top, who won when cars crashing behind him brought the race to a close.

The Daytona summer race, a long-standing Fourth of July tradition, is now a late August thriller. It ends the NASCAR regular season and in 2022 there are two racers – Ryan Blaney and Martin Truex Jr. – in the playoff bubble, sitting 15th and 16th in points, knowing that only the top 16 drivers make the 10-race playoffs with a shot at the 2022 Cup Series championship.
