2020 Daytona 500 - Highlights


The 62nd Daytona 500 got underway with President Trump doing a fly-over in Air Force One and taking a pre-race lap in the official Presidential state limo known as 'The Beast'. Trump also served as the Grand Marshal to kick things off. The race was delayed a few hours due to rain and only got a few laps into the Daytona 500 before rain officially sidelined the race until the next day. On Monday, the race got underway with no delays but ended with a brutal 19-car 'Big One' pileup that involved Ryan Newman leading the pack but being turned sideways by Denny Hamlin on the final lap. The race went into overtime with only 6 drivers remaining and Denny Hamlin winning the Daytona 500.
