Natalie Decker leads Xfinity laps; NASCAR explains ending

DAYTONA BEACH — William Byron beat Alex Bowman to the start-finish line. Of that, there is no doubt.

Was he ahead at the time the caution flag flew? And why did the caution flag not fly earlier?

Those answers get a little murkier.

NASCAR proclaimed Byron the winner shortly after the final yellow occurred, citing the fact Byron was slightly ahead of Alex Bowman at the right time. The organization justified that decision via X.

Austin Cindric (2) and and Ross Chastain (1) come together heading for the white flag during the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway, Monday, Feb. 19, 2024.
