After an almost six-and-a-half hour rain delay, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. sealed the deal with a popular win of the 2014 Daytona 500 on Feb. 23. After finishing second in three of the last four Daytona 500 races, the driver of the No. 88 National Guard Chevrolet SS fielded by Hendrick Motorsports captured his second career victory in the Great American Race by leading six times for a total of 54 laps. His first Daytona 500 win came in 2004.

"Congratulations to Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and the No. 88 Chevrolet SS team on winning the 2014 Daytona 500," said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. "Dale, Steve Letarte, and the entire crew demonstrated incredible focus, determination and teamwork all race long. They communicated really well on the radio in talking through race strategy, pit decisions and re-starts. This was a great start to the season by the No. 88 team in their pursuit of the championship."
