Takeaways From The 65th Daytona 500

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — One of the most competitive Daytona 500s ended in flames and sparks from a massive crash that determined the outcome of the 65th annual race at Daytona Int’l Speedway. 21 Ford to a shocking victory in the 2011 Daytona 500 that a single-car team has won the NASCAR Cup Series’ biggest race. For the majority of the race that kicked off NASCAR’s 75th anniversary season, the action was relatively tame, with the exception of a nine-car crash during the second stage. No matter what the rules or the type of car, NASCAR’s biggest race rarely ends in a clean finish. Richard Petty will forever be “The King” as the winner of 200 NASCAR Cup Series races and seven championships, and he is also one of the most popular drivers in NASCAR history. Gallagher then sold those shares to another seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, Jimmie Johnson.
