2020 Daytona 500 - Highlights

Race: Daytona 500 | Winner: Denny Hamlin
2/17/2020

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 Presidential state limo '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. Denny Hamlin ended up winning the Daytona 500 in overtime.
