Daytona Notes: Underdogs Thrive

That’s what superspeedway racing is when the NASCAR Cup Series visits Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway and Atlanta Motor Speedway. It was the last summer Cup Series race to start at 10 a.m., until Sunday’s rain-delayed race at the 2.5-mile track. Sunday’s race at Daytona brought monumental finishes for some of the smaller teams in the garage. It was the second top-10 of the season for Ragan, who is running only the superspeedway races. Gragson, who is an Xfinity Series winner at Daytona, will compete for rookie of the year in the Cup Series next year with Petty GMS Racing in the No. Since his Daytona 500 victory to open the season, rookie Austin Cindric has been pulled through the wringer as he’s adjusted to the nuances of Cup Series racing. “I was just trying to get to Austin Dillon,” Reddick said.
