Why NASCAR called for caution on final lap

William Byron earned the victory in the 2024 Daytona 500 on Monday when he led at the time of caution on the final lap.

Byron just beat out teammate Alex Bowman as the two raced for the lead as Ross Chastain and Austin Cindric spun behind them as the field crossed the start-finish line for the white flag lap.

It’s the first Daytona 500 win for Byron, who is becoming one of the sport’s stars in his 20s.

The finish was controversial given the timing of the incident and the caution being put out, but should it have gone differently for NASCAR?
