Jamie McMurray takes the checkered flag at the Daytona 500!

Wow!  If you ever want to watch a NASCAR race this is the one.  The Great American Race better known as the Daytona 500 was must see TV.  After 8 long hours interrupted by a 2 hour delay to fix a “pothole” in the track Jamie McMurray took the checkered flag to win the race.

As the race wore down caution flags were flying like penalty flags on a football field and twisted metal was the end result.  NASCAR produced what the fans were looking for…speed….speed…and carnage.   The race eventually was won by McMurray after a strong push from Dale Earnhardt Jr. who came from 10th to 2nd in the last lap.  Truly a great race!  In the winners circle an emotional McMurray was humbled at the opportunity to race after some trying times over the past few years.  A gracious champion who was thankful for the opportunity to honor his car owner and sponsors loyalty with a victory of this magnitude.  Congratulations Jamie you earned it!!
