Going into the weekend, likely few people gave Justin Haley even an outside shot at winning the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway.

But if you did, Sunday was your day.

Brandon Reed, Pete McCole and Amy Henderson have a look at Justin Haley's surprise victory at Daytona and the rest of the race, including:

-After a massive multi-car crash, two ligtning delays and the onset of a massive downpour, Justin Haley was declared the winner when Sunday's Cup Series race was called 33 laps early.

-Austin Dillon and Clint Bowyer took a lot of drivers out of the running when they tangled at the front of the field, setting off a 17 car crash.

-Brad Keselowski was the talk of the weekend after tangling with William Byron on Thursday, then getting taken out from contact with Kevin Harvick on Sunday.

-Steve Phelps does his best Kevin Bacon impersonation from "Animal House," telling the media "All is well" on Friday.  But is it?

-Plus, we preview this weekend's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity Series races at Kansas Speedway.
