Jimmie Johnson held off Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the wire on Sunday, taking the checkered flag in the 2013 Daytona 500. Earnhardt Jr. finished second, running out of room as he tried to chase down Johnson on the last lap. Danica Patrick, who ran in the top-10 all day, finished eighth after losing ground on the last lap.
The Daytona 500 started slow enough, with drivers content to wait things out in the early going. A wreck on lap 32 was our first real action of the day as numerous cars got caught up in the mess, leading to the second caution of the 500 -- the first was a debris caution just before the crash.

I’m not a Danica fan. (And I absolutely can’t stand her father who was barred from the paddock at Indy for his antics.)
However she does have my respect as a capable (if journeyman level) driver.
You don’t get 6 top 10 finishes (7 total races) in the Indy 500 without some talent.
Would Paul Menard be running Cup if his name was Paul Smith?
Probably not but he’s a competent driver who mostly runs midpack. I see Danica in the same view.
You're the one with the problem, dudette. I see nothing wrong with a skillful female driving race cars. I don't believe gender should prohibit one from competition when one has displayed the necessary skill to rightfully compete.
Just because I dont like someone does not make me a phony.
Then tell me the politics of all 43 participants in the Daytona 500.
You sound like a liberal. I do not know the politics of the 43 others drivers. So quit asking that same inane question.
I have tried my best to be civil, but in all honesty, I am done with you. I detest Danica and you are a worthless waste of time.
You're as ignorant as you are phony, misogynist.
You’re foul-mouthed besides all the rest of your faults. Do you use that language in front of the females in your family?
You can tell you’re an independent liberal. FU!!!
Do the females in your family know you swing that way? Your dislike of Danica is more obvious, misogynist!
You are obviously one of those “last word” douche-nozzles. Sorry, but I have run out of F**KS to give.
An iritable Tar Baby.
AW is an irritable Tar Baby.
Once you post anything, you can’t get rid of him.
You got that right. I doubt IT is a true conservative. IT gave me hell for daring to judge someone on their politics, which is a nonsensical statement to make on a political website like FR.
