Denny Hamlin (11) wins the closest ever Daytona 500 in the history of the race, winning by one-hundredth of a second. Along with it being Hamlin’s first win in the race, it was also Toyota’s first ever victory.
Hamlin was at the front of the pack for 95 of the 200 laps, but was running in fourth place on the final lap. With options running out, Hamlin made a very strong move to the outside and powering by Martin Truex Jr in the 78 car.
While the race was thrilling, those patriotic individuals attending the race got a thrill before the race ever started. During the singing of the national anthem, the Air Force Thunderbirds did a flyover. The timing was perfect. Watch and enjoy.
