also an update on the 11 of denny hamlin. mike wheeler told him as soon as the caution came out, save, save, save, save, save. they feel they've got one shot here in overtime. >> man. >> mike wheeler. he's got to be chewing his fingernails off. >> you can save all you want but the bank's not paying a lot of interest. >> no, but i believe the number of cautions we've had, even with the overtime, i still believe they're in pretty good shape. but how about this. the first race of 2016, we'll have an overtime. >> that's right. >> we're going to check out this new procedure that we have, that nascar's implemented with the nascar overtime. i would say that, yeah, he can handle maybe one overtime. i'm not -- i don't know if he can handle a lot of overtime. >> i think we're pretty optimistic we're going to have any cars left to do overtime. >> let's check with vince. >> jeff gordon described it as bumper cars, kyle. what'd you see out there? not much lace for you to go. >> no, i seen the 19 and the 2 really fighting for a spot.
i could see. i could tell we were going to wreck. i tried to check up a little bit. then it's on from behind me. but nothing else you can do from there, i guess vr it's funny when the guys behind you get through the wreck and they're able to go on the rest of the way. i hated for our m&m camry -- still pushing to 13, working really good together. i was going to push him to see if i couldn't get farther, give ourselves a chance to win. hopefully benefit our teammates can do it. >> thanks, kyle. >> thanks, tell mates denny hamlin and and matt kenseth running first and fourth. >> wow, a lot of damage there. >> wow. >> carl edwards who moments before was in a position to challenge for the win. >> last year in this race, half the field ended up wrecked in the garage. and we were hoping not to have a repeat of that tonight.
where we are. >> well -- >> i'm not going to say anything about the attrition rate anymore. like you said, business picked up. >> you just become so aggressive and you can't let out the throttle. you've got to stay on the gas. if that means pump along guy, trying to push him forward so you can go forward, sometimes it pays off. when it doesn't, hello! >> down the straightaway, that's kind of been a staple of daytona racing for a long time. >> and tonight. >> it has been and you can do it, you've just got to be careful, make sure you're squared up on that bumper. if they start to weave back and forth you've got to get off of that bumper of the person in front of you. we may have been hopeful but the reality is, i'm not surprised. i expected this to happen in this race. >> i did too. >> let's join matt with denny hamlin's crew chief. >> anner jeer for much of kenny hamlin's success at daytona, the rookie crew chief mike wheeler, my crew chief thinks you're about good to go on fuel.
your calculations? >> i hope larry mack's right. i think we can do this one. if we get extra time here, might come up short. which kind of stinks. he's running good, we're happy to be here. >> describe the excitement and the nerves. your first time especially in a situation like this. >> so far, so good. not too bad. luckily it's a nonpoints race and you can have fun. hopefully we'll get back to victory lane. >> good luck. >> thank you. >> here's vince. >> a little bit frustrated, would elshow you the replay with carl edwards. what'd you feel like happened there? >> well -- brad's still not going to let me in, i learned that. no, i'm kidding. from the replay i saw, looked like that's pretty much my fault. i stuck it in this here, high-risk maneuver. i thought, okay. we've got a shot. i knew i had to get in front of brad. he got a little bit more of a run i thought. i could feel him. i shouldn't have come up that
we came down here to win this race. had a lot of fun, learned a bunch. sorry to the guy whose car i tore up. like to end them something. man. just having fun. i don't know. that's the kind of race it is. i wouldn't feel right if i didn't try to get up there. i just went too far. >> understand that. thanks, carl. >> fun while it lasted. carl edwards. now tomorrow we will set the front row for the daytona 500 on fox. >> tomorrow on fox, daytona 500 qualifying. catch the sport's biggest stars as we set the starting lineup for thursday. and determine the front row for next sunday's running of the daytona 500. it all starts tomorrow, 1:00 eastern, 10:00 a.m. pacific, only on fox. >> you'll see all of tonight's drivers and nearly 20 more
starting positions in the 500. >> mike, overtime. >> we're going to overtime. >> overtime! >> nascar style! >> yeah, baby. >> all right, here here's newt rule. they'll wave the green flag at start/finish as usual. and if it is a clean restart and the leader makes it around to the overtimeline on the back straightaway without the caution flag waving, then the next flag, yellow or checkered, will end the race. if the leader doesn't get to the overtime line before the caution waves the line will back up and do it again. again flag in overtime. denny hamlin, joey logano, and the rest of the field. >> look how organize the outside lane is. a little bit better. see if that pays off for the 22 and the 20. >> larson fell way back down. shifted gears, i don't know if he didn't -- just lost a little momentum, i guess. >> if he goes on the outside, this thing's over for him. but he didn't. ended up going back to the inside.
three wide. >> there's the overtime line. >> we made it to the line. >> can we make it to three more? >> can we make it back around? >> 42 going to the top of the 20. 42 first to recover. >> the 22 and 11 being side by side it's anybody's race to the line. we could have a photo finish here. >> white flag this time. hamlin back to the front. >> one thing i bet you hamlin doesn't do is go below that yellow line when he comes down here for the win. >> wow. whoa! >> whoa. >> no -- >> all at the back. >> we may make to it the checkered flag. >> leaders on the back straightaway. coming hard. caution waves. it's over. >> caution, hell yeah! >> 25 cars start. eight cars finish.
it around to the checkered flag under reduced speed. and he will be the sprint unlimited winner for the third time in 11 tries. >> what a great game -- >> hamlin, checkered flag, wins the sprint unlimited over logano -- >> great job, great job. >> well, well done, man. 21 caution laps made it happen. >> he's feeling good right now. new crew chief. >> what a way to start off. >> three unlimited wins for second most in the history of the sprint unlimited. as coach joe gibbs leads the team prayer. it's hamlin's sixth win at daytona. and his fifth in speed weeks. it will be the eighth time coach gibbs goes to victory lane in
last lap. >> looked like hamlin put a big block on the 27 car. the 20 gets in there behind menard. and then as they got into turn one, looked like they just ran out of room between the 20 and the 1. he was side by side with the 2. then kind of the 78 in that as well. >> woo. one wreck right after another, it's amazing. >> it happens when the 11 blocked the 27's run, the 20 was behind him, stalled them out a little bit. the 1 car had momentum coming to the center. he saw an opening there. and then the closing laps of these races as i mentioned before, you don't check up. you don't lift. you can't if you're going to win the race. and it's really all about winning. stay in the gap even if that gap closes right in front of produce. >> yeah, you can't drive your car and the other guy's. when the other buy has trouble you're going to hit him and that's going to cause more trouble. it's just -- causes a big, big mess.
the car in the garage area for heaven's sake. >> the car that won the race is torn up. whole right side caved in. >> see how much fuel he has here to do his burnout. >> oh, he got -- >> joe gibbs racing has won the unlimited four of the last five years. >> he was very kind to the beautiful grass. >> he got the memo on the grass. you tear up the grass, you're going to pay for it. >> not sure about all this. >> a lot of smoke. that's pretty awesome. >> nice delivery. >> always nice to make your mark, first race, daytona speed week 2016. >> look at coach. yeah i think i got a handle on this deal. >> denny hamlin's team celebrates his victory.

>> he told mike wheel over the radio "one race, one win, bat batting 1000." i don't know what was more impressive, the block on menard or the poise and composure of your rookie crew chief on the box, working the fuel. >> i don't know if he was poised. he was poise on the the radio. such a young team of crew chief, engineers, they all look like they're a bunch of high school kids. but they did a great job. i'm so happy for mike wheeler. to start 1 for 1 with a good win at daytona. thank our partners. this win first of all couldn't be possible without my teammates. you know, matt sacrificed so much, pushing me at the right time. carl at the end as well. total team effort. just like cale's championship. we win as one. this is a joe gibbs racing win. thank toyota, fed ex. toyota for their commitment to this daytona rising. sprint, coke. the jordan brand, the greenbrier.
it's great to open up with a win. >> the spotter that told you? or you sensed the 27 of menard? >> well, i mean -- i knew -- i when had in my mind what he was going to do. when the cars are closing that fast, you've got to -- you almost have to anticipate where they're going to go or else you're going to get wrecked. so luckily it worked out for us. you know, this is a leader-driven race as we've seen. and luckily we were able to bring it home. >> good luck. looking for his first daytona 500 next weekend. he was second two years ago. jamie? >> joey logano, for a minute i thought it was going to be a photo finish between you and denny. you send up second. looking back is there anything you would have or could have done differently on the last lap? >> i'd have to watch the replay. i saw the 27, looked like he was going to try to put it three wide, which is a good move on his part. i had to block that. then i saw the 42 with a big run. i went to get that push. and then i just seen kyle get really loose behind me.
surgery on his right knee in the offseason. the wreck early, was involved, you saw the tape on lap 13. he leads the most laps with his new crew chief. the third different crew chief in the last three years. mike wheeler was always with the team. he says this is the last crew chief i'll ever have. after this start, i think they're at a pretty good connection here. >> denny loves wheeler. wheels they call him. they've got a great relationship, they complete each other's sentences. i talked to denny, he said i don't know what to expect, haven't raced since november, how my going to do? looks like he did pretty good. that move to block the big run paul menard had was amazing. >> this is the setup or a sampling of the daytona 500, tomorrow we'll set the front row. denny hamlin, age 35, hasn't won a daytona 500 what do you expect from him and some of the others trying to get that position for the running of the great american race? >> you look at the crew chief/driver combination. jimmie johnson, chad knauss, the magic they had. dave rogers, kyle busch. those rips get you over that
