Todd Gilliland took first place in the K&N Pro Series East Jet Tools 150 at New Smyrna Speedway but he did not cross the finish line first.    Ronnie Bassett, Jr. did. The Jet Tools 150 became the Jet Tools 151.  On lap 151 Spencer Davis and Todd Gilliland crashed.  When NASCAR  officials realized and extra lap was ran, they utilized the old Rule 10-2.11.B.

Gilliland said, “It was crazy, I don’t really know what happened, but it all ended up being okay for us. I pulled in third and they told me to go to Victory Lane.”

NASCAR’s Statement: “As tonight’s K&N Pro Series East race neared the conclusion of the advertised distance, there was a delay in the appropriate flags being displayed to the field. As a result, the race continued for an additional lap beyond the scheduled 150 laps, during which a wreck occurred involving cars at the front of the field. Per the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Rule Book Section 10-2.11.B, the official results of the race reverted to the running order at the completion of lap 150, the advertised distance. NASCAR will review the circumstances surrounding the finish and take steps to avoid a recurrence.”
