Austin Dillon drives No. 3 back to victory in Daytona 500

Also, 20 years ago this week, Dale took his No. 3 vehicle into victory lane for his one and only Daytona 500 victory in 1998.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. may have left the auto behind - retiring due to a series of concussions - but he is still looking to build a broadcasting career. Indeed, 20 years after Dale Earnhardt's Daytona 500 win, owner Richard Childress and grandson Austin Dillon made history once again in the No. 3 auto. The driver who made it famous won his first Daytona 500 in 1998 after leading more than 100 laps.

Dillon's win in the No. 3 auto also came two decades after Earnhardt's victory in the Daytona 500.

"Man, this place is awesome". I would never have this chance without the support of Dale and everyone involved with the No. 88 team.

In 2015, Dillon was involved in a major crash at Daytona that threw his vehicle into the catch fence. "There's a lot of pressure on me to perform because I've had a little bit of everything". But I'm willing to take that and go with it.

"It was the last lap and we're all trying to win the Daytona 500", Almirola said.

"I look up to him". I did not want to feel any negative feelings when I came here. And I thought that was an omen. "Congratulations first of all to Austin (Dillon) and the No. 3 team", Newman said. "I know how good at the plate tracks", Earnhardt said.

Seventeen years after his dad's death, Earnhardt had only positive vibes Sunday at the famed racetrack where his father died. We found the right drafting lanes and I was making good moves.

At day's end, the 27-year-old who was a wide-eyed seven-year-old in Gatorade Victory Lane when Earnhardt won, had his own piece of Daytona 500 history.

The wreck happened when race-winner Austin Dillon locked bumpers with Almirola as they neared Turn 3. That led to an emotional embrace with Wallace's mom after the event.

After another moment with his sister, Wallace sat at the dais sobbing into a towel.

Bubba Wallace recorded the best finish in the DAYTONA 500 by an African-American, besting the 13th-place finish by Scott in 1966.

"Pull it together, bud, pull it together. We were staying upfront and out of trouble, it just didn't work out".

Almirola's sole win in the Monster Energy Cup Series came at Daytona in July 2014. Joey Logano and Chris Buescher rounded out the top-five finishers in a wild 500-mile event.

Kurt Busch was out front and away from the carnage to win Stage 1, but he was caught up in the crash on Lap 198 and taken out of contention. He wrecked Kurt Busch, the defending race victor, trying to reclaim his lead and the contact damaged Blaney's Ford. I think we broke a valve spring or something like that. Patrick posted a photo on Instagram on Saturday of her and her new boyfriend Aaron Rodgers with her family at the beach. The only woman to lead laps in the Daytona 500 and win the pole for this race then told a story about an exchange she had earlier this week with four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon. "Then he sent out a tweet and I got weak at the knees", Wallace said. Amazingly, Dillon was only ahead in the very last lap of the race. He slid through the infield grass to celebrate the same Earnhardt did when he ended 19 years of futility with his only win in NASCAR's biggest race. "We are going to keep kicking butt the rest of the year!"

It's problematic, and NASCAR needs to find new reasons for fans to watch.
