It's pretty fair to say that Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has had a roller-coaster career in which he had to fight to keep a job, lost his seat at a NASCAR powerhouse team and opened his 14th season mired in a five-year losing streak.

So winning Daytona 500 is a massive achievement, and a well deserved reward for Ricky's hard work, and determination to make it to the top!

Stenhouse won the Daytona 500 in double overtime and under caution on Sunday in the longest running of "The Great American Race.''

The two overtimes pushed the 65th running of the event to a record 212 laps -- a dozen laps beyond the scheduled distance and a whopping 530 miles.
