    The record book shows Aric Almirola had one career Xfinity Series victory before Friday night's win at Daytona International Speedway. Almirola was declared winner of Friday night's race when NASCAR determined he was the leader when the caution flag froze the field shortly before the finish line. It was technically the second win of his career, but he doesn't accept that win because he was replaced midway through that race by Denny Hamlin and it was Hamlin who drove the car to victory lane.

    Greg Biffle used a last-gasp push to steal the pole for Saturday night's race at Daytona International Speedway. Biffle was the last car to make a lap in Friday night's qualifying session and earned the top starting spot with a speed of 192.995 mph in his Roush Fenway Racing Ford. It is Biffle's first pole since 2012.

    Denny Hamlin insists he didn't let retiring NASCAR star Tony Stewart win last week at Sonoma Raceway. Asked about his runner-up finish at Daytona International Speedway on Thursday, Hamlin made it clear that his mistake was the main reason Stewart got by him in the final turn Sunday. Stewart passed Hamlin on the inside going into tricky Turn 11 and held on to break an 84-race winless streak.
