All is right with the world once again. Dale Jr. wins the Daytona 500.
What a race. Maybe they should run it at night all the time.
Everyone that stayed with Fox on Sunday night and didn’t get caught up in the Sochi closing ceremonies was rewarded with a pretty good race and a win by NASCAR’s most popular driver. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. fended off repeated challenges from teammates and Roush Fenway, Penske and Joe Gibbs Racing drivers to capture his second Daytona 500. With the top 25 cars separated by less than 1 second, it was a buzzing pack of wild action once the rain cleared.
