My first Daytona 500

My first Daytona 500 was a blast. This event was truly amazing. I loved the atmosphere of the big race. This was a sold out event where people from all over the country came to see their favorite driver in what is the biggest race of the year for NASCAR. As you can see the sunsets were beautiful everyday there was an event. Things started to heat up before the race event started. The day kicked off with a celebrity red carpet where the fans were able to get photos and autographs of the biggest celebs. One celebrity in particular that I am a huge fan of is Peyton Manning and he was there to drive the pace car before the race went green. It was so awesome being able to see him at this event. The race was incredible from start to finish. So many wrecks in this race that if you survived you had a chance to win. That's what happened when Aric Almirola wrecked on the final lap and Austin Dillon avoided disaster to capture the win. The last time the No. 3 car was in victory lane was 2o years ago which made this a special night for sure. I will never forget how incredible this race was. There is nothing truly like it.
