was racing for the checkered flag in the

Daytona

500 he was going for his second
championship when he was spun and involved in that vicious wreck it allowed Denny Hamlin to take the lead and take the checkered flag for his third victory now Hamlin knew there was a wreck but he didn't know the extent of it until he got into Victory Lane and was told as soon as he found out and his team found out that's when the celebration was really subdued you know racing is so competitive it's an ultra competitive sport but it's also close-knit these drivers know each other
