The Daytona 500 is a NASCAR sprint race, held on Sundays at Daytona Circuit in Florida every year around mid-February or the end of the year. The characteristic of this restricted local race is 200 laps, which is equivalent to about 500 miles. In 2008, it celebrated its 50th anniversary, commonly known as the “Great American Racing” and “Super Bowl Stock Racing”. It is considered the most outstanding and outstanding event on the NASCAR calendar.

The scoring is similar to the general sprint cup game. Its importance can be judged by the annual opening of NASCAR events, not by the fact that other most important events are held at the end of the year. Since 1995, it has been publishing the highest ratings of various car races on American TV, surpassing the ratings of the Indianapolis 500, and enjoying high track attendance.
In 2006, Daytona 500 people successfully attracted more than 20 million viewers, which was the sixth highest average for TV broadcasts that year. The winner, the Harley J. Earle trophy, was exhibited in Victory Lane with the winning car as the S. Tona 500 experience; it is a museum, isolated on the Daytona circuit. Earlier, the game was held on the beach and on the highway adjacent to the beach. Rather than 500 miles, it initially covered 200 miles, and stock cars were tight, using wipers and radiators to resist sand.
But since 1959, it has been replaced by 500 miles. Therefore, since 1961, its name “Daytona 500”. The Daytona 500 game held in 2000 was upsetting. Johnny Benson took the lead until Dale Jarrett overtook it, because it restarted with only four laps left. As a result of Jarrett’s lead, he kept the rest of the lap and successfully caught his third Daytona 500 champion. In the 2007 Tona 500 competition, for the first time, new foreign products were added in the form of Toyota.
The game was held six years after the death of Dale Earnhardt. The race ended with two Toyotas participating in the race. The 2005 champion Dell Jarrett finished 23rd, and Walter Rip finished 30th. Tony Stewart, who initially led the game, fell from the horse because of a collision with Kurt Busch. It is said that this crash is similar to the crash that caused the sad death of Dale Earnhart. But the two players were lucky to escape unscathed.
The Tona 500 in 2008 celebrated the 50th anniversary of the event, which was first held in 1959. In this golden jubilee year, NASCAR’s Tomorrow Car was put into operation for the first time after its launch in 2007. Both are the first games held under the banner of free online content after the merger of Sprint and Nextel in 2005.
