Woods Share Memories On Pearson's '76 500 Win
On 40th anniversary of dramatic finish
NASCAR is unique in the sports world for a lot of reasons, chief among them is that it holds its own Super Bowl of sorts, the Daytona 500, at the start of the season rather than at the end.

But few Daytona 500s have ended as spectacularly as the one 40 years ago this month.

Latest Happenings in the World of Racing
by Brian Carroccio
In what is typically a time of dryness and despair for motor racing fans, there was a bit of a respite this weekend in the form of an entertaining Rolex 24 at Daytona. While there were many enjoyable parts of the famous enduro, particularly the race to the finish in the GTLM class, for my money, the story of this weekend’s race was the breakout performance of Pipo Derani.
