Known for his skill in many forms of motorsports, Clauson made 26 career starts in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. The family's full statement is below. Additionally, NASCAR announced Wednesday it would honor Clauson with a decal on the NASCAR XFINITY Series cars this weekend at Mid-Ohio. To honor the life of Bryan Clauson, NASCAR will make this decal available for XFINITY Series teams in Mid-Ohio. pic.twitter.com/Iu29gSOUvu — NASCAR (@NASCAR) August 10, 2016 "We would all like to thank you for all of your prayers and concerns over the last few days. It provided strength and comfort during a very difficult time for us. Nothing prepares you for these moments. We have all watched from afar as other families have had to face their own tragedies or been there to support our family and friends as they have spent their own time in the hospital. However, nothing makes you ready to say goodbye. You take each moment as it comes and we could not have made it to this point with out all of you. One of the gifts that Bryan gave us while we sat next to him praying for some good news, was the moment we found out that he was an organ donor. It shouldn’t have surprised us. All of us have felt Bryan ’s generosity throughout his life. The gift of life is the most amazing gesture and Bryan will live on not only through us and all the people he touched along the way, but from the lucky individuals that will benefit from Bryan making a decision to be a donor. It was not lost on our family as we sat huddled around him, holding his hands, comforting him and each other, saying our last goodbye that five families were also sitting in a hospital room somewhere, comforting their loved one and each other while praying for a miracle that Bryan ultimately delivered for them. We are so proud of our Bryan for making this decision. The Nebraska Organ Recovery team made the entire process very comforting. Their compassion, love, and respect when treating Bryan did not go unnoticed. We want to acknowledge every member of the Nebraska Organ Recovery team. Thank you for loving our Bryan . If you are a donor, thank you. If you are not, please consider for a moment becoming one. We have seen first hand how amazing it feels on both sides of the coin. It is the greatest gift that one person can give another. We promise. Again, thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers and friendship. We look forward to seeing you at the races. Lauren, Tim, Di, Taylor"

Tyler Reddick wins season opener at Daytona
19-year-old scores first NASCAR national series win just 18th start Play: NASCAR Fantasy Live MORE: Full race results " Updated standings DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.— As trucks fanned out four-wide behind him, Tyler Reddick took the first checkered flag of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career in Friday night's NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway. Behind the race winner, Erik Jones charged to the outside to grab the runner-up spot, followed by Scott Lagasse Jr. and Austin Theriault, Reddick's Brad Keselowski Racing teammate. Teamwork between the two BKR trucks was crucial to Reddick's maiden win. "I just had all the confidence in the world in our trucks going into the race," Reddick said. "If we were able to get together, we were going to be able to do some great things together and help each other out. Once I knew we finally we got together on the front row for those restarts, I had a pretty good feeling that we were controlling the race and controlling the pack. "I just can't tell you how much it means to have a teammate there helping me get my first win. I just hope I can do the same for him on down the road." "He owes the 29 (Theriault) big," Lagasse agreed, "because the 29 did some door-slamming to help him." Jones surged from fourth to first off the final corner, after he and Lagasse lagged back to get a run on the leader. "Scott and I were kind of dragging back, trying to see if we could get a run to the top there," Jones said. "When the 29 and the 19 (Reddick) came off of (Turn) 4, the 29 never lagged back. He just tried to pull out and make the pass on the 19. "When he did that, it just opened the door for Scott on the bottom, and I was dragged back a little bit more than he was and got the pull off both of them. I went to the top and saw the opening and (ended up) running second. Just kind of a typical Daytona thing, I guess." A massive wreck on Lap 49 of 100 wiped out a third of the field, but the two Brad Keselowski Racing trucks managed to stay out of harm's way by staying up front for the vast majority of the race. By the time the hood flew up on Bryan Silas' No. 99 Chevrolet, covered the windshield and forced the truck to pit road, there were 13 trucks on the lead lap, with Reddick and Theriault in the top two spots. Silas returned to the track sans hood, but on Lap 85 the air cleaner dislodged from the top of the engine, landed on the racing surface and caused the fifth caution of the evening. Reddick and Theriault paced the field to a restart on Lap 89 and held the top two spots until Ryan Ellis' Chevy slowed on the track and caused the sixth caution with eight laps remaining, setting up the scramble to the finish at the end. Note: Defending series champion Matt Crafton finished eighth ... Rookie Ray Black Jr. ran fifth, despite sustaining damage during a Lap 13 accident that caused the first caution of the evening.
