List of Daytona 500 winners

This is a list of Daytona 500 winners. The Daytona 500 is a 500-mile-long (805 km) NASCAR Cup Series motor race held annually at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. It is one of four restrictor plate races on the Cup schedule. The first Daytona 500 was held in 1959, coinciding with the opening of the speedway, and since 1982, it has been the season-opening race of the Cup series. [1]

The Daytona 500 is regarded as the most important and prestigious race on the NASCAR calendar, carrying by far the largest purse. [2] Championship points awarded are equal to that of any other NASCAR Cup race. It is also the series' first race of the year this phenomenon is virtually unique in sports, which tend to have championships or other major events at the end of the season rather than the start. Since 1995, U.S. television ratings for the Daytona 500 have been the highest for any auto race of the year, surpassing the traditional leader, the Indianapolis 500 which in turn greatly surpasses the Daytona 500 in in-track attendance and international viewing. The 2006 Daytona 500 attracted the sixth largest average live global TV audience of any sporting event that year with 20 million viewers. [3]

The event serves as the final event of Speedweeks and is sometimes referred to as "The Great American Race" or the "Super Bowl of Stock Car Racing". All 62 Daytona 500s since the first race in 1959 have been held in February. From 1971–2011, it was associated with Presidents Day weekend, taking place on the Sunday before the third Monday in February. For 2012, the race was pushed back a week, to the last Sunday of February. Because of inclement weather conditions on February 26, the day the 2012 Daytona 500 was supposed to be held, the race was postponed until the evening of Monday, February 27, [4] and it was not until the 2013 Daytona 500, which was held on February 24 of that year, that the race took place on the last Sunday of February for the first time. [5]

The winner of the Daytona 500 is presented with the Harley J. Earl Trophy in Victory Lane, and the winning car is displayed, in race-winning condition, for one year at Daytona 500 Experience, a museum and gallery adjacent to Daytona International Speedway. Michael McDowell is the race's incumbent champion after winning it in 2021.


Decoration Day

On May 5, 1868, General John A. Logan, leader of an organization for Northern Civil War veterans, called for a nationwide day of remembrance later that month. “The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land,” he proclaimed.

The date of Decoration Day, as he called it, was chosen because it wasn’t the anniversary of any particular battle.

On the first Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, and 5,000 participants decorated the graves of the 20,000 Civil War soldiers buried there.

Many Northern states held similar commemorative events and reprised the tradition in subsequent years by 1890 each one had made Decoration Day an official state holiday. Southern states, on the other hand, continued to honor the dead on separate days until after World War I.

1st wedding anniversary: Paper

Wedding Anniversary Gifts by Year: Paper

One of the best-known traditional wedding gift themes, the first anniversary denotes paper as its theme. A bit flimsy and delicate, paper represents how the couple has only just started their lives together and haven’t quite stood the test of time yet. Think of it as representing a clean sheet, a blank slate for all the years to come.

The Remarkable History Of 4th Quarters In The Stock Market

In the NFL and NBA, the fourth quarter is when winners and losers are often separated. That’s because (barring overtime) the game ends. Many investors think of calendar years the way sports fans think of individual games. Unless 1-year return is a specific part of their objectives, I think this is a mistake. But I have come to realize over the years that there are some aspects of investing and investment evaluation that are unlikely to change. Thank human nature for that. Of course, the long-term in anything is made up of a series of short-terms, so with that in mind, I present to you the remarkable history of the fourth quarter, at least in terms of the S&P 500 Index.

I went back three decades, starting in 1988. This was the year after the crash of 1987, which did occur in the fourth quarter (October), which produced a 23.3% return in that year’s final three months. As you can see in the table below, there were some pretty ugly quarters, typically contained within existing bear markets. But on average, the October-December period has treated investors either well or very well.

Return of the S&P 500 Index from October to December

When you consider that 24 out of 29 years, the S&P 500 gained at least 2% in the fourth quarter, and averaged more than 5% over that time, that tells us that there is something about this time of year that the market responds to favorably. There is, of course, the fabled “Santa Claus Rally” which attributes investor optimism to positive emotions from the holiday season and end of the year cheer. Naturally, there is more to it than that, but I have learned never to underestimate the herd mentality in the financial markets. It operates in both directions.

And while I am a cautious investor for reasons stated in numerous articles this year, that does not preclude a market “melt up” from occurring before investors confront the next bear market for stocks. Perhaps helping the cause is concern that the Federal Reserve will start unwinding its massive bond portfolio this month, reversing years of “Quantitative Easing” designed to support investment markets and credit conditions since the Great Recession nearly 10 years ago.

History tells us that there is something about the fourth quarter that forces us to consider that regardless of the market’s stresses and deficiencies, the end of the calendar year has an upward bias. And while there is no telling what will actually occur for the rest of 2017, we must recognize and account for the historical tailwind that the final three months of the year brings.

Rob Frisbee and Brennan Swain (season 1)

The very first winners of The Amazing Race were best friends, and we're delighted to tell you that they're as close as ever 20 years on.

Nowadays, both work as lawyers specialising in copyright, intellectual property, and patent law, while Rob has also been working on the side as a TV writer.

Brennan, who is an avid traveler, is now godfather to Rob's baby son Max, and recently celebrated the 20-year anniversary of their Amazing Race win.

He wrote on Instagram: "20 years later I can look back and realize what a life changing experience it was. Sure, being on TV was great. But, it was the actual race and travel that affected me on a greater level.

"I made life long friends with many of the other racers on my season (Kevin O'Connor), other seasons of TAR (Alexander Boylan) and other CBS reality shows such as Survivor (Burton Roberts) and Big Brother (Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd).

"I've been able to use my small dose of celebrity to raise money for many great charities and I've been able to continue to travel the world and visit over 40 countries. It's difficult to put into words how lucky I was to be a part of that first cast.

"20 years later I'm still best of friends with Rob and was honored with being the best man at his wedding and godfather of his son, Max."


Good company: Helio Castroneves wins Indy 500 for fourth time

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis 500 was meant to mark the return of some sort of normalcy, at least for the marquee sporting events that Americans find so meaningful.

For Helio Castroneves, Indy provided a professional rebirth that pushed him into an elite club that last welcomed a new member 30 years ago. He became just the fourth four-time winner of the Indy 500 on Sunday in front of 135,000 fans at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, easily the largest and loudest sporting event since the start of the pandemic.

The race was postponed to August a year ago and held without spectators for the only time in its 105-year history. Given permission to open 40% of the grandstands this year, the exuberant crowd came in droves and went wild for Castroneves' historic win for the old guys.

Biding his time until the moment was right, the veteran passed 24-year-old Alex Palou with two laps remaining and the frenzied crowd roared its approval. When the Brazilian took the checkered flag, he rushed to the fence for his traditional "Spiderman" climb that belied his 46 years.

Castroneves had been trying since 2009 to join A.J. Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears, his former mentor at Team Penske, as the only four-time winners of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." Mears was the last driver to join the club in 1991.

Castroneves became the fourth-oldest winner in Indianapolis 500 history, behind Al Unser (47, 1987), Bobby Unser (47, 1981) and Emerson Fittipaldi (46, 1993).

After climbing down the fence, Castroneves ran nearly a mile down the frontstretch for a victory lap on foot. He pumped his arms in the air and waved to the ecstatic crowd, his explosion of emotional energy stopped every few feet by a flood of rivals who rushed onto the track to congratulate him.

"I was drawn by the positive energy of everyone. For a long time these people want to see a four-time winner," he said. "I say that because they tell me. Every time we sign the autographs, they are like, 'I've never seen a four-time winner. I want to see it.' That's what probably made me thank all of them because they made this place special."

Almost every member of Team Penske rushed out to meet Castroneves, including former teammate Will Power, who saw the final scoring pylon and had no idea his longtime friend won.

"I was looking up and down 'Who is the 06?'" Power told Castroneves in a victory hug. "You're a legend."

Castroneves spent more than two decades driving for Team Penske and won three Indy 500s with the team. But he was eventually phased over to the sports car program, where he won the IMSA championship last season before Roger Penske shuttered the team and made the business decision to cut Castroneves loose.

Penske, now the owner of the speedway, embraced Castroneves in victory lane. Foyt welcomed the new member to the four-time winners club.

"He deserved it, he worked hard to get it and he finally got it," said Foyt, who was celebrating the 60th anniversary of his first Indy 500 victory. "It wasn't given to him and when someone works as hard as he did, I'm glad it happened for him."

After Castroneves, still the last driver to win consecutive Indianapolis 500s in 2001 and 2002, was cut loose by Penske, he insisted he was not done racing yet.

Shank hired Castroneves for the Indy 500 to complement the one-car Meyer Shank Racing team. Maybe Castroneves would have a shot to win, but he'd also boost a team that needed some veteran leadership at one of the most challenging tracks in the world.

Castroneves was also part of the winning Rolex 24 Daytona sports car team in January, taking the prestigious sports car event for the first time.

"I've run two races this year and won two races, I'd say that's pretty good," said Castroneves, who noted this might be the year for aging veterans.

"I don't know if this is a good comparison, but Tom Brady won the Super Bowl and Phil Mickelson won the golf so here you go. The older guys are still kicking the younger guys' butts."

Brady, a seven-time Super Bowl champion, capped his first season with Tampa Bay by leading the Bucs to their first championship in 18 years at 43 years old. Mickelson at 50 became the oldest major winner last week.

Castroneves' win was a stark contrast to the recent theme of young drivers taking over IndyCar, which now has six different winners through six races this season. Three of them have been first-time winners and four are drivers aged 24 or younger.

Castroneves found himself in a closing duel with one of the young stars, but he passed Palou for good with two laps remaining and beat him by 0.4928 seconds for the victory.

When he finally made it to the real victory lane — after a kiss from Mario Andretti, a hug from Johnny Rutherford, well wishes from just about every Indy 500 great — Castroneves sipped from his bottle of 2% milk and then dumped the rest over his head.

When he climbed into the back of a convertible for his true victory lap around the 2.5-mile speedway, most of the fans were still in the stands cheering Castroneves. The lap took more than 20 minutes to complete and the fans who stayed in the stands climbed the fence to cheer him as he passed.

"I thought the neatest thing riding around in that Camaro convertible with him was all the fans stayed, no one left. The place was packed," Shank said. "I got to physically see the history-in-the-making type of thing. I saw a thousand people climbing the fence all around the track. It was just so cool to be a part of. I believe Helio deserves to go for a fifth Indianapolis win. We're going to do everything we can to make that happen for him."

Former Penske teammate Simon Pagenaud, the 2019 Indy winner, was third, followed by Pato O'Ward, the 21-year-old budding IndyCar star.

                                      Despite the mixed reception received by the preceding year's ceremony, the Academy rehired Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd as producers for the second consecutive year. [34] In May 2017, it was announced that Jimmy Kimmel would return as host for a second consecutive year. [35] “Mike and Jennifer produced a beautiful show that was visually stunning. And Jimmy proved, from his opening monologue all the way through a finale we could never have imagined, that he is one our finest hosts in Oscar history,” said AMPAS president Cheryl Boone Isaacs in a press release announcing the return of the show's producers and hosts. [36] Kimmel expressed that he was thrilled to be selected to emcee the gala again, commenting, "Hosting the Oscars was a highlight of my career and I am grateful to Cheryl [Boone Isaacs], Dawn [Hudson], and the Academy for asking me to return to work with two of my favorite people, Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd. If you think we screwed up the ending this year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show!" [37] Kimmel became the first person to host consecutive ceremonies since Billy Crystal hosted the 69th and 70th ceremonies held in 1997 and 1998 respectively. [38]

                                      Several others participated in the production of the ceremony and related events. Harold Wheeler served as musical director for the ceremony. [39] Production designer Derek McLane designed a new stage for the ceremony which prominently featured a curtain made of forty-five million Swarovski crystals. [40] During the nominations announcement, several vignettes featuring Priyanka Chopra, Rosario Dawson, Gal Gadot, Salma Hayek, Michelle Rodriguez, Zoe Saldana, Molly Shannon, Rebel Wilson and Michelle Yeoh were shown before several categories highlighting the importance of below-the-line crafts in the film production. [41] Four days prior to the ceremony, the Academy in conjunction with the Los Angeles Philharmonic hosted a special concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall highlighting the Best Original Score nominees and the involvement of music in the film making process. [42] During the performance of Best Song nominee "Stand for Something", ten individuals such as activist Dolores Huerta, Me Too movement founder Tarana Burke, chef and humanitarian José Andrés, and author Janet Mock appeared onstage to represent people who epitomized the message of the song. [43] [44] In view of the previous year's Best Picture announcement error, actors Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway returned to present the award again. [45]

                                      Traditionally, the previous year's Best Actor winner usually presented the Best Actress award. However, Best Actor winner Casey Affleck reportedly decided not to attend the ceremony due to his sexual harassment accusations. [46] [47] Jodie Foster and Jennifer Lawrence presented the award together in his place. The Best Actor award was presented by actresses Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren. [48] [49]

[50] When the nominations were announced, Dunkirk was the highest-grossing film among the Best Picture nominees with $188 million in domestic box office receipts. Get Out was the second-highest-grossing film with $175.6 million, followed by The Post ($45.7 million), Darkest Hour ($41 million), Lady Bird ($39.1 million), Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri ($32.2 million), The Shape of Water ($30.4 million), Call Me by Your Name ($9.1 million), and Phantom Thread ($6.3 million).

                                      Critical reviews Edit

                                      The show received a mixed reception from media publications. Some media outlets received the broadcast positively. Hank Stuever of The Washington Post remarked, "In his second year, Kimmel has shown that the telecast needn't be anything but sharp and sure, with a funny host whose bits are manageable, shareable and – best of all – forgotten. We're not making showbiz history here we're just trying to get through another Oscar night." [52] CNN's Brian Lowry quipped, "The Oscars are a big, unwieldy beast, which invariably try to serve too many masters. Yet if the intent was ultimately to maintain a celebratory tone without ignoring either the outside world or the elephant in the room throughout this year's awards, host Jimmy Kimmel and the show itself largely succeeded." [53] Television critic Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "How did Kimmel do overall? With the exception of the theater stunt and two unnecessary toss-off Matt Damon jokes — Kimmel really can't resist — I thought he was good, probably even better than last year." [54]

                                      Others were more critical of the show. Television critic Maureen Ryan of Variety said, "All things considered, the show had a more or less low-key vibe. Normally it takes about two hours for the numbing effect to set in, but despite host Jimmy Kimmel's best efforts, Sunday's telecast started to feel a bit languid and low-energy far earlier." She also added, "The ceremony probably felt so ambiguous and conflicted in part because everyone in that room — and many at home — know how much more work needs to be done before true inclusion is the norm and all the offenders are driven from the industry." [55] Time television columnist Daniel D'Addario commented, "Kimmel, a talk show host who has been inspiring and catalyzing in the past year while discussing issues personally connected to him, seemed flat and uninspired in his monologue when dealing with topics that demanded laceration." [56] David Wiegand of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, "Even the hope that the noise of clapping might keep the audience at home and in the theater awake, there was little of that for anything except the entrance of actors of advance age." [57]

                                      Ratings and reception Edit

                                      The American telecast on ABC drew in an average of 26.5 million people over its length, which was a 19% decrease from the previous year's ceremony. [58] [59] The show also earned lower Nielsen ratings compared to the previous ceremony with 14.9% of households watching the ceremony. [60] In addition, it garnered a lower 18–49 demo rating with a 6.8 rating among viewers in that demographic. [61] At the time, it earned the lowest viewership for an Academy Award telecast since figures were compiled beginning with the 46th ceremony in 1974.
