On the 36th lap of 65, the race was red flagged due to lightning in the area.

However, Just before that, we saw a driver change on the No. 27 machine.

JJ Yeley is no longer in the car. He pulled to the pit lane to have the pit-crew blow cold air on him. His in-car cooling system wasn’t functioning. Instead, it was blowing hot air right in the face of JJ Yeley.

Here’s why NASCAR had to tweak Daytona road course for stock cars

Yeley collapsed while climbing from his car and.

“I’m not really hungry. But, ice in a cup would be nice,” Chase Elliott radio after the crew asks if he needs anything during the red.

Bayley Currey is now driving the No. 27. Currey was the only driver around who had a suit and was ready to drive.
