Jeff Zarrella reflected Sunday night after Stewart-Haas Racing and Kurt Busch captured their first Daytona 500.
A lap 128 crash sent Busch into the turn 3 wall and collected teammates Clint Bowyer, Kevin Harvick, and Danica Patrick.
The former Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion pitted multiple times to fix a left rear tire rub. The crew changed four tires again after Busch reported it was still rubbing. Zarrella saw the right side tires had no rubs. The team used that set of tires with 3 laps on it instead of a set of stickers. The team did not have time to glue the lug nuts so they carried the lug nuts to change tires.
