Forrister pitted during on lap 20 taking fuel only and restarted 11th and finished 11th in the second stage of the race on lap 40.
The Wauters Motorsports team came in for four Goodyear tires and Sunoco fuel but the pit crew was over the wall too quickly, sending Forrister to the tail end of the longest line. The team chose to come down pit road on lap 45 to top-off with fuel restarting in the 18th position on lap 46.
Green flag pit stops on the famed Daytona International Speedway were starting to begin when two trucks collided in the draft, clipping the No. 5 Advanced Medical Laboratories Tundra and sending him into the front stretch grass. The damage was too severe for Forrister to continue ending the Wauters Motorsports teams day early on lap 72 of 100.
“It was really not the finish we were hoping for at Daytona,” Korbin Forrister said. “The Advanced Medical Laboratories / Wauters Motorsports team is going to be strong this season and I’m looking forward to being back in action next weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. I can’t thank all our sponsors enough, the fans for standing beside us and look to get a better run at my hometown track.”
