Jimmy Johnson Tries for Daytona 500 Historic Win
Racing fans are watching for this year's Daytona 500, and everyone is wondering if Jimmie Johnson will become the first driver to win four consecutive titles.
There's been a sizeable crash at lap 123, taking out Kyle Busch. Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Brian Vickers were also involved.
- LAP 123: Kyle Busch, who led 88 laps, is out, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Brian Vickers also involved
- LAP 123: Huge crash! Yellow Flag
- LAP 123: Green Flag and a new leader: Elliott Sadler, Reed Sorenson, Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards
- LAP 121: Dale Earnhardt Jr. is assessed a one-lap penalty for having his right-front tire outside of his pit box
- LAP 120: Field leaders head to the pits for new tires during the caution
- LAP 118: David Stremme blows a tire, Yellow Flag for debris on the track
The number 1 search term on Google Trends on Sunday morning was for 'Daytona 500 start time'. The race began at 3:30pm est.
Now, Johnson is aiming to become the first driver to win a fourth consecutive title, a quest that begins in today's 51st running of the Daytona 500.
A major Google Trends search item at the moment is "Daytona 500 start time." This leads to total confusion on my part. If you are a true blue NASCAR fan, how could you not know the Daytona 500 start time on the very day of the Daytona 500?
After the Daytona 500, focus will be on whether Jimmie Johnson can win a record fourth straight NASCAR title, or whether the likes of Carl Edwards can finally dethrone him. Johnson starts seventh at the Daytona 500, with Edwards at 16'th.
