Johnson Wins Dayton 500

Jimmie Johnson rallied to win his second career Daytona 500 on Sunday. The five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion held off Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the final lap. Johnson also won this race in 2006. Fifty-four-year-old Mark Martin finished in third, followed by reigning Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski and Ryan Newman. Pole sitter Danica Patrick finished in eighth place. The 30-year-old became the first woman ever to lead a lap at the Daytona 500 and also became the 13th driver to lead a lap in both the Indy and Daytona 500.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people.
