The Coke Zero 400 at Daytona was filled with excitement as the race started to come to an end.

Drivers started the race driving in a single file, but after the race really started to get underway, other lines emerged for drivers to race side-by-side.

Denny Hamlin and Jeff Gordon would continue to struggle with their bad luck, as both drivers would be taken out when the first big wreck of the night happened.

Jimmie Johnson would lead the most laps, and as the race came down to a Green-White-Checkered finish, Johnson remained out in front.

As they continued to race on the final lap, drivers in the back of the field started to wreck. NASCAR allowed the drivers to finish racing, and as another huge wreck occurred, Jimmie Johnson would cross the finish line in first.

Johnson swept both Daytona races, and has now become the only driver to win both races since Bobby Allison did it back in 1982.

Now the battle between Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth continues, as both drivers are tied with four wins heading into the Chase.

Will these two drivers cross paths as NASCAR heads into New Hampshire?
