THE KING AND PRINCE OF DAYTONA
Wheels n Heels
by Sherri Breaton
Feb 23, 2015
The 57th running of the “Great American Race”, the Daytona 500 took place Sunday February 22, 2015 and we watched as NASCAR began to say goodbye to a retiring king while ushering in a new prince. That “king” being none other than four time Series Cup champion and three time Daytona 500 winner, Jeff Gordon. The “prince” being 24 year-old Joey Logano, who became the second youngest driver in history behind only Trevor Bayne to win the coveted title. Bayne was only 20 when he pulled off one of the biggest upsets in 2011.
By all appearances Gordon, the driver of the #24 DuPont Chevrolet, is not planning on riding off into the sunset quietly. Gordon was the first pole winner to eclipse 200 mph since 1987. His pole-winning speed was 201.293, but this was only achieved because he was being pushed by teammate Jimmie Johnson rather than running a lap around the speedway alone during qualifying.
