Daytona 500 - Daytona International Speedway

Newman Victorious in 50th Running of the Daytona 500
Ryan Newman got a shove from his teammate Kurt Busch on the last lap to give car owner Roger Penske his first Daytona 500 win. And what a win it was. It was the 50th running of "the Great American Race" and Penske's Dodges held off a spine-tingling, last-lap challenge by Joe Gibbs Toyota teammates Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch. The race, one of the most competitive in Daytona's storied history with 42 lead changes at the start/finish line, went right down to the wire.

Defending Champ Johnson Wins Daytona 500 Pole
Jimmie Johnson won the Coors Light Pole Award for the Daytona 500 with a lap of 48.109 seconds, 187.075 mph. This is his 14th pole in 220 career NASCAR Sprint Cup races. Johnson has one previous pole at Daytona, in his first NASCAR Sprint Cup race here (February 2002). He became the 25th driver to post multiple Daytona poles. Michael Waltrip posted the second-fastest qualifying time with a lap of 48.197 seconds, 186.734 mph. That sets the front row for the Daytona 500. All other starting positions will be determined following the Gatorade 150 qualifying races. This is Waltrip’s first time on the front row for a Daytona 500 and tied his career-best Daytona starting position set in qualifying for the 2004 Pepsi 400. Three of the past seven races at Daytona have been won from a front-row starting position – but none were a Daytona 500. The last Daytona 500 to be won from the front row was by Dale Jarrett in 2000.
