Reddick wins Xfinity Daytona opener after five overtime restarts

18 very good dogs of the Daytona 500

Joey Logano crossed the line second, followed by Justin Allgaier, Elliott Sadler and Tyler reddick.

It was the second straight race in which Sadler finished second.

"This one hurts a lot", said Sadler.

The worst wreck came when Kyle Larson - who was leading the race - spun around off the bumper of Aric Almirola. "Helluva way to start the year off with JR Motorsports ... and get my first win for JR Motorsports".

On the restart with 16 laps remaining, Larson led the way and Sadler and Elliott were already back to 14th and 15th, respectively. "These guys have been pretty aggressive".

The five overtimes - and a red flag of five minutes, 27 seconds - pushed the race 23 laps past the scheduled distance and forced teams to desperately conserve fuel after each caution.

Matt Tifft pit under green on Lap 43 with a flat-right-rear tire but no caution was displayed. Then a late accident sent the race to overtime. Sadler said after being the first driver off pit road during the stage break.
