Great American Race Lives Up to its Name
I don’t know what is harder to believe about the Daytona 500 this year, the fact that a 20 year old rookie won the race or the fact that some guy name Trevor won stock car racing’s Super Bowl. Both facts are true, 20 year old Trevor Bayne driving for the legendary Wood Brothers brought his #21 Ford home first in a 500 that for race fans was one of the most exciting 500 miles we’ve seen in a long long time.
This entire crazy afternoon may have been the shot in the arm NASCAR desperately needed. The sagging racing circuit is desperate for new stars, new drama and new excitement, and what was the wildest, strangest and, in the end, most compelling Daytona 500 in years delivered just that.
There were crashes and spins, amazing passes and driving that was simple hard to believe. How did your favorite driver do? We’ve got the story!
