February 18, 2001

The 2001 Daytona 500 would be most well known for the tragedy on the final lap:  a crash that resulted in the death of NASCAR's biggest star, Dale Earnhardt.  It would also be important for the victory of Michael Waltrip, who hadn't won a points-paying Winston Cup race in his previous 462 starts and had won his first race as a driver for Dale Earnhardt, Inc.

The 2003 Daytona 500 was the second of Michael Waltrip's two Daytona 500 victories.  While the first was marred by the death of Dale Earnhardt during the final lap of the race, this one was also not a regular victory, as Waltrip's victory was announced during a red-flag delay for rain:  the race was called after 109 laps.
