WHAT. A. FINISH.
All day long during Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Wawa 250 at Daytona International Speedway, the three Kaulig Racing drivers — Justin Haley, Jeb Burton and AJ Allmendinger — worked together flawlessly.
The trio stayed together all race long, and even finish 1-2-3 in the second Stage of the race. As the race came to the final lap, all three drivers fanned out and separated down the backstretch, and it was a drag race to the finish line, which resulted in a three-wide photo finish.
Here is video of the incredible finish:

In the end, it was Haley who prevailed by 0.023-sec. over Allmendinger. Burton would barely be edged out for third by Justin Allgaier.
Here is a slow-motion look at just how close the finish really was:

If that finish doesn’t get your blood pumping, I don’t know what would.
