Daytona 500 Results

Dale Earnhardt Jr tops the Daytona 500 Results sheet from Daytona International Speedway.

A black piece of tape drops from the sky and plugs the nose of Dale Earnhardt Jr with just 3 laps to go. Bad news at any other point of the race but with 3 laps to go it’s a magic gift. This gift comes the same weekend the number 3 car returns to Daytona.

It was a shootout from the time the green flag dropped to the checkered at lap 200 as Jeff Gordon explained in post race interviews. Drivers were side drafting and running every lap like it was the last lap. This was partially due to the relentless threat of rain throughout the event.

The race already hit a 6 hour rain delay early this afternoon. If rain fell anytime past the 100 lap mark it pretty much ended the race.

Add the threat of rain to racing at night. Now you have max grip and drivers willing to make bold moves that might not otherwise be accomplished during the day.

A message to any viewer who threw in the towel after the rain delay even though you’ve seen the Daytona 500 results sheet. I strongly suggest you catch the Daytona 500 re-run next Friday February 28th at 8pm E on Fox Sports 1.
