Jimmie Johnson Wins 2013 Daytona 500

By February 24, 2013

Follow me on:

The 2013 Daytona 500 featured long, uneventful, single-file green flag runs and a mad scramble on the final lap as Jimmie Johnson held off a charge by Dale Earnhardt Jr. to claim his second career Daytona 500 win.

Danica Patrick continued her historic Daytona 500 run.  She capped off her pole qualifying effort with another historic statistic as the highest finishing woman in the history of the Daytona 500.   She was in the hunt all day long and part of the last-lap scramble for the win.

In the future no winner of a race should be allowed to destroy their car prior to, during, and after burn outsThat includes driving into the grass,destroying the front end before inspection by officials. The destruction of the front end on jimmie johnsons front end has left many people wondering if there was some sort of cheating going on with that team.
