It didn't take long for Stewart Friesen to see his hopes for a victory at Daytona International Speedway to come to an end on Friday night.
Friesen, a former regular at Ransomville Speedway, was involved in a 17-truck accident at the end of the first lap. He could not continue. Friesen was running in the first event of the season in the Camping World Truck Series.
Chase Briscoe became entangled with Noah Gragson, and the tightly bunched field had nowhere to go. It brought out a cautious flag that slowed the Next Era Energy Resources 250.
Friesen is a native of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., and his family owned Ransomville.
Rookie Kaz Gral was first over the finish line of the race, which also featured an accident on the race's final lap.
