THE NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES CURTAIN-RAISER AT DAYTONA PROVED JUST HOW MOTORSPORTS CAN BE SO EXCITING AND FRUSTRATING SIMULTANEOUSLY. THE RACE IN WHICH ZANE SMITH TOOK THE WHITE FLAG, TWICE, WAS FULL OF DRAMA, AND NATURALLY, SOUR REACTIONS.
The race was led by the Front Row Motorsports driver up until the last lap. all was going normal until a pileup of wrecks.
After the pile-up, there was a simultaneous White and Yellow flag, causing the race to go overtime. There was another series of wrecks when Zane Smith went on to take the white flag.
Zane Smith went on to take the White Flag before the Yellow Flag came due to the wrecks, spiking a major controversy.
Some reacted in a pretty sour way while some relied on the good old sarcasm as they called out the inconsistency of the decision making.
