Huge wreck comes near midpoint of NextEra Energy Resources 250 Play: NASCAR Fantasy Live DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The bad luck associated with Friday the 13th had a one-week hangover in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series as a massive 12-truck stack-up thinned the 32-truck field in Friday night's season opener at Daytona International Speedway. Starting off the year on an up note wasn't in the cards for the unfortunate dozen, all of whom had their high hopes derailed near the halfway point of the NextEra Energy Resources 250. It was the biggest melee in the 100-lap, 250-mile opener, continuing the trend of especially tense, close quarters racing across all three NASCAR national series at Daytona's Speedweeks. "It's just a product of the racing," said Timothy Peters, fifth in last year's final truck standings but crashed out in 24th place in the 2015 opener. "It's great racing. Just hope there'll be enough trucks on the race track to finish." The truck-swallowing conflagration began shortly after Ben Kennedy's No. 11 truck slowed with damage near the top lane at the end of the backstretch. When the pack stormed past on Lap 49, congestion and a hair-trigger reaction bottled up the single-file scrap among Austin Theriault, Scott Lagasse Jr. and James Buescher, snaring bystanders behind them. A blown tire on Kennedy's truck, battered from an earlier altercation, forced the second-year driver to limp his Red Horse Racing around the 2.5-mile track. With the pack bearing down on him, he was unable to steer to safety on the apron. "It was either wreck it into the pack or wreck it into the wall, and we had pretty much wreck it into the wall at that point," Kennedy said. "Stinks for these guys, it stinks for (sponsor) Local Motors and that's not the best way to start the season, but we'll get them from here." By the time the sparks and smoke died down in Turn 3, Buescher, Peters, Kennedy, John Wes Townley, Ryan Ellis , Spencer Gallagher, Chris Fontaine, Cameron Hayley, Daniel Hemric and Todd Peck had piled in. Theriault and Johnny Sauter also were involved but to a lesser degree. Though several drivers involved made the mandatory trip to the infield care center, all emerged unhurt but with stories of scary views to share. "It was funny. I saw kind of the obvious -- cars starting to collide -- and then I saw my hood all over my windshield for the rest of it," said Gallagher, who started 10th. "Sadly, there wasn't much to be done. … This is but a setback. We know what we are and what we've got for this year." Said Hayley, a product of the NASCAR Next program: "I was following the 05 of John Wes Townley and all I saw was smoke. Just white smoke and I tried to go to the outside and just couldn't get there and next thing you know my hood is crunched and I was sideways."

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.

Third pole of 2014 for Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender RELATED: Qualifying results Ty Dillon won his second Coors Light Pole Award in the past three races with Saturday afternoon's effort at Kansas Speedway . In the No. 3 Chevrolet, Dillon posted a best lap speed of 183.943 mph in the final round of multicar qualifying to win his third pole of the season. The Kansas Lottery 300 is scheduled for later today at 3:30 p.m. ET with coverage on ESPN, with Dillon and Ryan Blaney (183.686 mph) leading the field to green. Blaney was just 0.041 seconds behind Dillon in his No. 22 Team Penske Ford. Chris Buescher continued to his strong recent run and qualified third (183.393 mph) in his No. 60 Ford for Roush Fenway Racing. Kevin Harvick (183.362 mph) will start fourth, ahead of Brian Scott (183.299 mph). Series points leader Chase Elliott will line up 12th on the grid. Richard Childress Racing teammates Scott and Dillon led the opening two sessions, respectively. Matt Kenseth (181.622 mph) finished 13th in the second round and did not make the 12-driver final session. Neither did Ryan Reed (180.898 mph, 14th), Dylan Kwasniewski (180.789 mph, 15th) or James Buescher (180.463 mph, 16th). Regan Smith, second in the points standings to JR Motorsports teammate Elliott, qualified 24th in the field but will have to start from the rear, and in a backup car. He spun around in Turn 2 during the 10-minute second round, and his No. 7 Chevrolet incurred heavy damage. And because qualifying was hours before Saturday's race, Smith hasn't had any seat time in his backup vehicle. The red flag had previously been displayed in the second round when John Wes Townley hit the wall, but the break to clean the track of debris following Smith's wreck was significantly longer. Group qualifying at the 1.5-mile track consisted of three rounds, with 24 cars advancing from the first round to the second and 12 cars advancing to the final five-minute round. Milka Duno qualified 34th and will make her NASCAR debut. Morgan Shepherd, Tanner Berryhill and Ryan Ellis did not qualify.
