Coming out of turn 4 for the checkered flag Dale Jr. in the lead with Denny Hamlin in a close second and Jeff Gordon & Brad Keselowski mixing it up for third.  Kyle Busch making it three wide on the outside back a few rows, what an exciting finish and then a wreck.  Kevin Harvick moves up a little just enough to get into the left quarter of Kyle Busch and turns him down right in front of the rest of the field of cars.

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.
