NASCAR Daytona Coke Zero 400 results: Aric Almirola wins shortened race

There were a lot of NASCAR fans that were disappointed on Saturday when the NASCAR Sprint Cup Daytona Coke Zero 400 was postponed to Sunday morning due to weather, and they were even more disappointed on Sunday when the race was once again affected by the inclement weather, as it was shortened to 112 laps.

However, although shortened, there was still a winner and the man that took home the win under the red flag was Aric Almirola, driving the no. 43 car. Almirola started the race from the 15th position and led throughout 14 laps down the home stretch.

Right behind Almirola was Brian Vickers, who was driving a special no. 55 car that was painted in honor of the 2013 Florida State Seminoles national championship football team.

The highlight of the race, unfortunately, was the huge 26 car crash that happened right in the middle of the event, which you can watch at this link here.

Here’s a look at the final results from Sunday’s abbreviated race from Daytona:
