The Chevy SS has won its 2nd consecutive Daytona 500, taking the championship in both races since the performance car debuted at last year’s event.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., driver of the #88 car, took the checkered flag in an extended race that saw rain delays, collisions, and plenty of excitement.
Chevrolet is extending their racing dominance with another Daytona win, continuing their tradition as the most successful racing manufacturer.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the race for the first time since 2004, giving him his 2nd championship and the third Daytona win for the Earnhardt family. His father won the race in 1998.
Chevy has been one of the most successful racing manufacturers in the history of motorsports. This year’s championship marks the 2nd consecutive Daytona title for Chevrolet, while Chevy cars have taken 3 of the last 5 Daytona races.
Chevy has also won 8 of the last 10 Daytona races and has 23 titles – more than any other manufacturer.
But Chevy’s racing dominance isn’t limited to NASCAR. The brand has also won manufacturer’s cups in Indy Car, American La Mons, and the World Challenge.
