Nascar‘s biggest race of the year took place yesterday. The Daytona 500 is the most iconic race on the racing sport’s calendar. The race yesterday was delayed for a while due to adverse weather conditions including a tornado warning. Due to the weather delay, FOX broadcast a replay of last year’s race where Jimmie Johnson was victorious. Because of that, many people believed he did it again.

Here is what Jimmie Johnson Tweeted:

He Did Also Congratulate The Real Winner

Johnson did not win the race. It was nearly midnight when the race finally finished and Dale Earnhardt Jr. who drives the #88 National Guard Chevy was the first car to cross the finish line. What a great way to honor the memory of his father Dale Earnhardt Senior, who lost his life on the same track in 2001. What a start to the 2014 Nascar Sprint Cup Series.
