Years Later, No. 3 Chevrolet Car Returns to Daytona 500 Victory Lane

In celebration of a new commercial featuring Dale Earnhardt Jr. Goodyear created a special design on its iconic blimp temporarily replacing “Goodyear” with “#MakeAName” on the Florida-based Wingfoot One

His victory comes exactly 20 years after Dale Earnhardt Sr. captured his one and only Daytona 500, in the very same auto.

Dillon drove the iconic vehicle number made famous by Dale Earnhardt to the win 17 years to the day the Hall of Famer was killed in an accident on the final lap of the Daytona 500.

Dillon's win in the No. 3 vehicle also came two decades after Earnhardt's victory in the Daytona 500. "Congratulations first of all to Austin (Dillon) and the No. 3 team", Newman said.

Like his late father, Dale Earnhardt Jr. was known as a restrictor-plate king, winning four times at Daytona and six times at Talladega.

Especially for Earnhardt, who recalled how much relief he felt when he first won the Daytona 500 in 2004.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. won't be racing in the Daytona 500 for the first time since 2000, but that doesn't mean he won't be a part of it.

PM lays foundation stone for Navi Mumbai International Airport
The project requires over 2,268 hectares of land, of which almost 1,160 hectares will be used for aeronautical purposes. The second phase, to be completed by 2022, will take the handling capacity to 25 million passengers.

"I knew we were in a good spot", Dillon said. I just hugged him and said, 'Man, we got it. It's finally race day as the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has kicked with the 60th running of the Daytona 500.

A historic day for the Daytona 500 produced an emotion-filled result that will stand tall alongside the many other epic finishes that have built the tradition of "The Great American Race". Miller gave Earnhardt the penny and told him she had rubbed it and that it would bring him good luck. But the significance of everything, I was just kind of celebrating with everybody. Denny Hamlin finished third, followed by Joey Logano and Chris Buescher.

Wallace has rocketed to fame in the last month and won new fans following an emotional, post-race scene that included a long, tearful embrace with his mother that symbolized the struggles Wallace has faced on the road to NASCAR's top series.

"Maybe I should have just flung (Hamlin), but you have to treat guys with respect and you've also got to throw your elbows out and you have to hold the hits when you get hit".

"If that was Lap 5, I probably wouldn't have pulled that block, but it was the last lap of the Daytona 500 and I was doing everything I could to try and win", Almirola said. If it feels weird or uncomfortable, or is not something I'm proud of, then I just don't have to do it. "Then he sent out a tweet and I got weak at the knees", Wallace said. But we want to hear what you think - was the all-American race all you hoped it would be this year?

Busch appeared to have the advantage after a restart with seven laps remaining, as he pushed past Blaney, but the final crash of the race ended his quest for a repeat. The lucky penny the little girl gave him is still on the dash of the auto at the RCR museum.
