Daniel Hemric wins pole for today's Xfinity race at Daytona

Five-overtime Xfinity Series race leads to closest finish in NASCAR history

Reddick nabbed teammate Elliott Sadler at the finish line.

The previous closest finish was a 1995 Camping World Truck Series race at Colorado National Speedway where the margin was 0.001 seconds.

Daniel Hemric laid down a blistering lap to win the NASCAR Daytona XFINITY Series pole.

This is Reddick's second victory in the Xfinity Series. In his first season in retirement from full-time racing, Earnhardt's presence is still strong through his race team.

"This feels absolutely unbelievable", said Reddick, who won the 2015 Truck Series opener at Daytona. I kid you not I was thinking all weekend that we'd have to be smart all year to get into the playoffs, and now we're already in.

Tyler Reddick beat Elliott Sadler by mere inches to take the win after a fifth attempt at an overtime two-lap finish.

Larson led a race-high 61 laps.

A wreck by Dylan Lupton sent out the 12 caution of the day and forced the fifth overtime. Chase Elliott and Sadler were served pass-thru penalties by NASCAR on Lap 95 for doing just that. After the restart, the leaders were packed heading coming down the stretch before Kyle Larson spun out, taking out the majority of the front of the field.

The 143 total laps was a record for the Xfinity Series.

"Probably racing a little too aggressive there to start the race", Cindric said in the garage.

Christopher Bell should be as well, as he moves up after winning the Truck Series title in 2017. "That last run, I just pushed Ryan (Reed) as hard as I could; we're pretty good buddies off the track so it was cool to try and push him to a win ..." Unfortunately, he did not have enough owner points to get into the race.
