Denny Hamlin won the 61st running of the Daytona 500 after not winning a race last year. Hamlin beat out teammate Kyle Busch for his second career victory in the "Great American Race." Erik Jones finished third to give Joe Gibbs Racing the top-three spots. Hamlin also had to overcome two massive wrecks in the final 10 laps that involved more than half the cars. Joey Logano and Michael McDowell rounded out the top-five.
