Daytona 500: See the crash that resulted in a victory for Michael McDowell

Everyone loves an underdog story.

Michael McDowell was not a favorite to win the Daytona 500 in 2021 as he did not claim a victory in his last 357 NASCAR Cup Series start. That changed Sunday night.

With Joey Logano out in front during the race, Brad Keselowski tried to dart around him, but Logano threw a block at his Team Penske teammate and crashed them both. McDowell, meanwhile, stayed in position where he was and drove through the crash scene for an astonishing disturbance.

Here is video of the tough last lap that resulted in a few more crashes on the racetrack:

And here’s McDowell’s ecstatic interview after the race:

The victory for McDowell was his first career Cup victory in his 358th start. He had 100-1 odds of winning the race.

“There have been many years where I wondered what the heck am I doing and why am I doing it?” Said McDowell via ESPN. “I always knew that if I just kept painting, that one day everything will be in line and go right. ”

And it did.
