Seventeen years ago, the NASCAR world lost “The Intimidator” Dale Earnhardt Sr. in a fatal crash at the Daytona 500. Now, 20-years later since Earnhardt’s Daytona 500 win, the No. 3 is back in victory lane at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Dillon won the 60th edition of the “Great American Race,” as rookie Bubba Wallace came in second place. Dillon became the third driver to take the No. 3 car to victory lane at the Daytona 500.
Richard Childress, car owner, has also won another Daytona 500. Dillon is his grandson.
The 27-year-old Dillon now has two wins in his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career. He also won the Coca-Cola 600 last year in Charlotte, N.C.
Denny Hamlin, the 2016 Daytona 500 winner, was the third-place finisher. Joey Logano, who was the 2015 Daytona 500 winner, finished in fourth-place.
Chris Buescher finished in fifth place. This is his third Top 5 finish in his four-years of driving at NASCAR’s highest level.
