2008 DAYTONA 500 FINAL LAPS
It was Ryan Newman and his No. 12 Dodge, seemingly shot like a rocket down the backstretch all the way into history.
On a day when Nascar invited back its Daytona 500 champions to celebrate the 50th running of the most prestigious race in stock car racing, Newman became the latest to join that exclusive club.
"Don't have the words," Newman said after the celebration in victory lane. "It's awesome. It's probably one of the most awesome things that's ever happened to me."
For his team owner, Roger Penske, the victory ended a frustrating career at Daytona. He had won 14 Indianapolis 500s in open-wheel racing, but never the Daytona 500. It was an emotional win for the team. A year ago, Roy McCauley took leave as the crew chief for Kurt Busch, another Penske driver, as his wife battled cancer. McCauley, his wife recovering, took over as Newman's crew chief this year.
