Dale Earnhardt Jr. Takes The Daytona 500

After 37 laps were logged in the Great American Race, rain caused a six and a half hour delay; then we raced under the lights in prime-time, witnessing yet another great Daytona finish.

With a race that started off with a driver fueled by the Earnhardt legacy in Austin Dillon, leading off the field in the DOW #3 car, we ran through about 100 miles on the superspeedway before monsoon-like showers hindered the experience. That rain ended up being for the best, as tensions grew and more complex strategies had to be concocted.

Dale Jr. had one hell of a fast race car, and proved that in the late windings of the race, battling for the lead with Jimmie Johnson for a multitude of laps. Junior ended up clinching the late win during a Green-White-Checkered sequence.

It was a fantastic start to the 2014 NASCAR season, and we now have 35 more races to behold. Next up is Phoenix next Sunday.
