It is amazing that in the 53-year history of the race, we have 10 finishes that rank among the top finishes the sport has ever seen at any track. Restrictor plates have played a part in a lot of these and is the main reason these finishes are so exciting, since they keep the cars so close together. These exciting finishes span seven different decades of the race.With the recent excitement of the finishes in the Daytona 500, we can only imagine what could happen in just a few days when we have the 54th running of the Great American Race.
The 1990 Daytona 500 was dominated by one driver. However, it wasn't the winner, it was Dale Earnhardt. He led 155 of the 200 laps that day blistering the field. On his final lap, Earnhardt had a commanding lead until heading into Turn 3, where his right rear tire shredded from debris.This event allowed Derrick Cope to pass Earnhardt to take the first win of his career. That day defined the curse for Earnhardt.
The Daytona 500 is truly a race that creates and defines legends.
The “Alabama Gang” was running one and two in the final laps. Bobby Allison was trying to capture his third Daytona 500 while leading his son Davey Allison. This was the first Daytona 500 in the restrictor plate age.
Davey Allison waited until the final lap to try to pass his father. If he had attempted it earlier, it would have cost both men the win. Bobby Allison was too strong and Davey couldn’t pass him on the final turn and Bobby was first to the checkered flag winning the 30th running of the Daytona 500.
