2004 Daytona 500


2004 Daytona 500

The Daytona 500 was held on February 15 at Daytona International Speedway. Greg Biffle won the pole. Dale Earnhardt Jr. passed Tony Stewart on lap 181 and held him off in the remaining laps to win his first Daytona 500, six years to the day after his father Dale Earnhardt, Sr. won his first Daytona 500, and just three years after the Daytona 500 that took the life of Earnhardt, Sr. There were 4 cautions, one of the wildest occurred in a 11-car melee and sent Micheal Waltrip barrel rolling 3 times.
