(02-18-79) 1979 Daytona 500 - "The Fight!" Considered the all time best classic of "The Great American Race" sees amazing finish as Hall Of Famers to be Donnie Allison & Cal Yarborough race to the finish only to wreck each other with half a lap to go thus giving the win to The King Richard Petty. Then, Donnie's brother Bobby pulls up to the wreck, and he & Cal slug it out! It's considered to be the most pivotal race in NASCAR history, and the events that took place on Feb. 18, 1979, still resonate through the sport today. The first live flag-to-flag television broadcast on CBS. Record ratings as a result of a snowstorm that blanketed the entire northeast portion of the country. A last-lap accident that resulted in a surprise winner -- and an even more surprising post-race altercation. In one of the strangest races in Daytona 500 history, the wildest moment turned out to be an unscheduled tag-team wrestling match. Cale Yarborough and Donnie Allison smashed into each other while going for the lead on the final lap. When Bobby Allison stopped to survey the damage, the three began swinging fists and helmets at each other, leaving a surprised Richard Petty to cross the finish line the victor, ending a 45-race winless streak. It was almost inevitable that Yarborough and the Allisons would be involved in a race-ending incident, because that's how they started their day, once a chilly morning rain ended. On Lap 32, Donnie Allison lost control and forced Yarborough and Bobby Allison to take evasive action, as all three cars spun through the muck and the mire on the backstretch infield. Forced to pit to repair his waterlogged car, Yarbrough ended up losing four laps to the leaders. But he used a series of cautions to his advantage -- including making up three laps in a 35-lap span -- to get back on the lead lap for the final sprint to the finish. Chasing the Allisons -- leader Donnie and the lapped car of Bobby -- but a half-lap ahead of Petty, Darrell Waltrip and A.J. Foyt, Yarborough made his move on the final lap, diving below Donnie's car in Turn 1. Allison ran Yarborough down to the apron, where the two Oldsmobiles made contact, then slid up the embankment to hit the outside wall before spinning back into the infield. All three cars came to a stop in the grass, where the melee ensued. Helmets and racing gloves became weapons as the Allisons and Yarborough kicked and clawed in the mud. Petty, who had been running a distant third, suddenly found himself in the lead with less than two miles to go. Waltrip made a desperation move to the apron of the track in the tri-oval, but Petty stayed in front by a car length at the line. Petty, who had offseason surgery to remove 40 percent of his stomach, was racing against the advice of his doctor. - Voted one of NASCARs top 50 races - Added March, 2009

(02-18-07) 49th Daytona 500 - Wild and Crazy Finish that is the closest in this races history! Kevin Harvich noses (literally) past Mark Martin to win by two onehundreths of a second as chaos reigns behind them in massive pile up that even sees one car skid across the finish line upside down! With less than a mile to go, Kyle Busch's car was spinning. Clint Bowyer's car was upside down and on fire. Five other cars bumped and banged, careening into one another in a smoke-filled mass of twisted metal. Harvick beat the sentimental favorite to win NASCAR's premier race, six years to the day after Dale Earnhardt was killed on the final lap. Just days after his death, it was Harvick who was hired to replace him -- and he rewarded Richard Childress with the car owner's second Daytona 500 victory; Earnhardt won the other in 1998. "This had to be the wildest Daytona 500 I've ever watched," Childress said. "I kept my eyes shut there for a little while it was so wild." It took several moments for NASCAR to declare the winner, finally giving it to Harvick and spoilind what would have been the biggest victory of Martin's career. Harvick never off the gas as he charged from 29th to first in 22 laps. Martin, making his 23rd attempt at a 500 win, could see the checkered flag when Harvick barreled along the outside of him. Just as Harvick pushed into the lead, Busch wiggled behind them and bumped into Matt Kenseth to start a melee. Kenseth was spinning and Greg Biffle was, too. Bowyer flipped onto his roof and through the grass, flames shooting through the windshield. But Harvick and Martin continued to race side by side, waiting for NASCAR to call for a caution. When it finally came, Harvick and Martin were at the finish line, and Harvick was just barely ahead. The winning margin was .020 seconds, and NASCAR had to review the tape just to be sure who was going to Victory Lane. - Voted one of NASCARs top 50 races - Added March, 2009
