Danica's day at Daytona ends in wreckage

Still the big one: Drivers hold Daytona 500 in high esteem

On the 20th anniversary of Dale Earnhardt Sr.'s Daytona 500 win, Austin Dillon took the No. 3 vehicle, made famous by Earnhardt into Victory Lane.

"I tell her every week go out there, I love you, have fun", T.J. Patrick said. "But I like that pressure, the same with the No. 3, there's a lot of pressure behind it, but I'm willing to take it and go with it". Almirola moved to block him, but Dillon ran into his right-rear quarter panel and turned him into the wall. The margin of victory was 0.000 seconds, breaking the mark set by Butch Miller when he beat Mike Skinner by 0.001 seconds to win the Truck Series race July 15, 1995 at Colorado National Speedway. Dillon took out race leader Aric Almirola in the third corner of the last lap.

"I guess I could have lifted and gave it to him", he said.

Ryan Blaney again saw a potential Daytona 500 victory slip through his fingers late Sunday afternoon. I made good restarts, running two or even three wide.

The new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 stock vehicle got off to a great start during the week leading up to the 2018 Daytona 500. "My heart is broken".

Fair to say a lot of folks don't like the Dillons, who're perceived to have been given everything in their racing careers without having to earn it.

To celebrate, Dillon and several of his crew members pulled off their signature slide through the infield grass after Dillon had emerged from his auto and before he pulled his #3 Chevrolet into victory lane, which marked the first time since Dale Earnhardt won the 1998 Daytona 500 in his #3 Chevrolet that that had happened.

"I looked up, seen the board up here, the 3 and the 43, I thought, how special is that for the history". So when Dillon did an interview with NASCAR while sitting next to the auto, it was clear he wanted a little more time with it.

Of course, Danica's GoDaddy sponsors applauded her efforts at Daytona, saying, "We are amazed by the energy and determination @DanicaPatrick brought to the track today".

The movie "Black Panther" is a box office sensation
As " Black Panther " mania sweeps the nation, one man proposed to his girlfriend during a screening of the movie in Brooklyn, N.Y. Lack of representation is not just a Hollywood issue. "So we founded an organization to make those connections real".

After another moment with his sister, Wallace sat at the dais sobbing into a towel. Garrett Smithley was a career-best fifth and Daniel Suarez was the highest finishing Toyota driver in eighth. I know we pulled this together not that long ago, a month ago. Still have one more. "Definitely one of our biggest goals was just to come in here and finish the race and if we could get a solid top-10 that was great, a win - that's a story". They were quickly joined by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Kurt Busch. It spoiled what should have been a Team Penske party - vehicle owner Roger Penske had three contenders, all considered favorites - but all came up empty.

Elliott, who led 17 laps, finished 12th.

My favorite days of the NASCAR season are race weekends at Richmond Raceway, but the Daytona 500 is my next favorite race day of the year.

She crossed her pins as she perched herself on a chair to give a press conference Sunday before the event in Daytona Beach, Florida. She'll drive May 27th in the Indianapolis 500 for Ed Carpenter Racing. "That was one of my fond memories, too, of Daytona", she said.

"Funny story is when she first started at 10, I told my wife, 'she's going to change racing, ' her proud father said while standing beside her vehicle on the starting grid".

If Dillon didn't have enough of a push to try and pass Almirola cleanly on the last lap, he should have waited for the final corner to make a late charge and hope for the best.

Dillon was 7 when Earnhardt won his Daytona 500 and was photographed alongside his brother with The Intimidator on that victorious day in 1998. The lucky penny the little girl gave him is still on the dash of the auto at the RCR museum. So Sunday after the race, he was asked about what'll happen to that penny. Thank you to all the fans.

"I've been around it for a day or two". Dillon's tattoo includes the Daytona 500 logo with the word "champ" underneath, according to ESPN. The win also comes during the 20th anniversary celebration of Earnhardt's only victory in "The Great American Race".

-Austin Dillon won the race in one of NASCAR's most revered numbers, taking the No. 3 to victory lane in the 500 for the first time since Dale Earnhardt Sr.in 1998.
