I dont follow Nascar much but it is a nice story to see the 3 car back in victory lane at Daytona on the 20th anniversary of Dale Sr's win.

My congratulations go to Amirola who offered a very professional post race interview after being intentionally crashed going into turn 3 on the race's final lap.

Agreed. Bubba Wallace also had a good interview after being thrown into the wall by Hamlin coming to the line.

Just good old fashion racing, Dale Earnhardt did the same when he raced.

I didn't think so. Didn't Almirola check up?

In one post race interview he mentioned he was blocking Dillion(no mention of checking up), but Dillon got to his bumper.....got to his bumper going into the entrance of 3, he probably would have be fine if they were not so far down the back stretch. This matches up to what I saw.

Some drivers simply move on from being wrecked on the last/closing lap of a race, like Labonte in Aug 99 at Bristol when the #3's front bumper moved him out of the way into the wall for a win. But other drivers, like Carl Edwards, reciprocate the favor as he did in Atlanta to Kesolowski . After Kesolowski's start finish line crashing of Edwards in Talladega for his first win, Edwards put him on his roof the next weekend.

Almirola has Tony Stewart as his owner....not to hard to figure out what Stewart would do this week if he was in Almirola's seat on that last lap? Guess we will find out today.

The leader would never "check up" with open track ahead of him, especially at a plate track; he would not have any reason to do that. That is a guaranteed recipe to get run over.

Leading at a plate track on the last lap or two is often not the best place to be, because the cars behind the leader can get a huge run of momentum. As mentioned earlier, Almirola was trying to block on the last lap. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn't.

That's what it was. I had forgotten that Dillon had the run from the draft. "Checking up" was the wrong word, but slower/blocking would've been better.
