1992 Daytona 500 Winner

Davey Allison – 1992 Daytona 500 winner

February 16, 1992 the 34th running of the “Great American Race”

Overcast sky’s greeted a huge crowd for the 1992 Daytona 500.  This was the beginning of a year long fan appreciation tour from Richard Petty.  Petty would finish 16th in today’s race.  Sterling Marlin won the pole with a qualifying lap of 192.213 mph and his team mate Bill Elliott who started on the front row outside.  Marlin was up for a 180,000 dollar bonus if he could win this race.  Just after 60 laps the yellow flag came out due to rain.  More like a mist, it didn’t last long and they were back racing again.  1992 Daytona 500 winner…

I am proud to bring you this site, after many years of wondering who won the Daytona 500 in a certain year or how many times did Richard Petty win?  I thought I couldn’t possibly be the only one that has a need for a site like this.  So I made it.  If you found this site useful, please link to us or mention us on your racing related web site or social media.  Thank you very much.
