On Sunday he won the Daytona 500. It was the only Daytona 500 win of his legendary career, and three years later he passed away in the same race.

A Lap 199 late-race incident took out a number of front-running contenders and forced two extra laps of "NASCAR Overtime".

Earnhardt had lost 14 times driving the famed No. 3 vehicle for Richard Childress Racing, and both men desperately wanted to avoid more heartache.

Dillon refused to lift off the gas and nudged Almirola heading into Turn 3.

Two of three of Ireland's tries against Italy were from turnover situations and an interception. Our discipline has been excellent in the first two games.

Dillon and Wallace continued on to the finish line, with Dillon winning by 0.260 seconds.

Dillon also won in the 3 two decades after Earnhardt's lone victory in the Daytona 500. That is particularly appropriate since the commercial features Jim Croce's "I Got a Name" song, which was released in 1973 on the album of the same name. I wasn't going to just let him have it. ...

Dale Earnhardt Jr. refuses to let the worst memory of his life define his thoughts on the Daytona 500. "We are going to keep kicking butt the rest of the year!" "Greg and the team loved working with Alex, and that dynamic will get even better with more time together". His presence was steeped in storylines. From there, he edged out Darrell Wallace Jr. by 0.260 seconds to earn the victory in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season opener. He was a victim of bad luck, missed opportunities and close calls that stamped him 0 for 19 in NASCAR's biggest race.

For Wallace, it was the best finish for an African-American driver in the history of the Great American Race.

McReynolds: The auto gets back to the garage area and no Dale. A lot of things going on, got a new Whisky River (restaurant) opening in Raleigh in the few weeks, and just a lot of little things that I've had that were fun and that I've finally had more time to invest in.

Kyle Busch, a pre-race favorite, had his fair share of struggles in this Daytona 500. As those drivers were dropping out with stunning regularity during the sun-splashed afternoon, Dillon hung around - and hung tough.

Childress was the team owner for Earnhardt during six of his seven Cup Series titles. Childress wasn't sure he wanted to revive the No. 3. Now I just want to go win. "This is just so special". An ill-timed push of defending 500 victor Kurt Busch on lap 199 caused the final caution of the race. After contact with Blaney, Busch would spin and collect 11 others on lap 199. Before the race, Wallace received the support of baseball legend Hank Aaron and Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton. He finished.228 seconds ahead of Ryan Blaney, who came from behind to lead the pack on the final two laps. He was among the drivers involved in the Lap 199 mishap but rebounded to finish seventh. He won one of the twin qualifying races three days earlier.
