But as the two Hendrick drivers drag-raced around Daytona, Ambrose clipped the side of Johnson as he attempted a sudden lane change. He slammed into the side of Kahne, causing Kahne to spin and hit an inside retaining wall for another caution with five laps remaining.

“Jimmie got a little loose or he just didn’t see my move coming, and I split him coming off of (turn) two,” Ambrose said. “He came down to check the spot and I was already there and he just bounced us straight into (Kahne).”

Kahne angrily tossed his head-and-neck restraint into his car after climbing from the wreckage.

The race resumed in overtime with Johnson leading Harvick, Bowyer, Stewart and McMurray. He wasn’t challenged as neither Stewart nor Harvick could make a move before the race-ending caution.

“Jimmie just was good,” Stewart said. “Jimmie was just really, really good. We were just a little bit off of him.”

Added Harvick: “I really thought we were in the right spot. ... Our line just never developed. I’m a little disappointed because I really thought we were in the right spot.”
