Dale Earnhardt, Jr. wins Daytona 500Through rain and wrecks, on Daytona’s longest day, this was a drought Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was determined to end.
Nascar’s most popular driver won the Daytona 500 on Sunday night for the second time - a decade after his first victory - while snapping a 55-race losing streak dating to 2012.
The victory ended a streak of futility at Daytona International Speedway, where he finished second in three of the previous four 500s.
“The world is right right now - Dale Junior just won the Daytona 500,” teammate Jeff Gordon said. “That’s a sign it’s going to be a great season.”
