Daytona 500 CHAMPION!!

Jimmie Johnson won Sunday's Daytona 500 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in the No. 48 Lowe's Chevy SS. The victory was Johnson's second Daytona 500 win, and the first win in the Gen 6 car for NASCAR and Team Chevy.

Johnson started the race in the ninth spot and was able to run in the top ten for the majority of the race. He made his way to the front through pit strategy called by crew chief Chad Knaus and by effectively using the inside line to draft. When the final caution flag flew, Johnson had a run on the inside and was named the leader. He never looked back, and became the champion of the 55th Daytona 500 in what also marked his 400th start in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Johnson leaves Daytona with a five point lead in the championship standings over Hendrick Motorsports teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. The series heads to Phoenix (Ariz.) International Raceway next weekend for the second race of the 2013 season.
