Podcast #48 — Dillon is a Daytona 500 Champion

Show notes:

Recap Daytona 500:

  • Austin Dillon gets the win
    • Austin’s second win. Does this make him a legit winner yet? Or no?
    • Does this win mean anything in the grand scheme of things (championship?)
    • The winning move — just racing or dirty?
      • Audio 0:42 — Austin Responds to Winning Move
    • Win comes on the 20th anniversary of Dale Earnhardt’s win in 1998, and there were some similarities here, including how Austin celebrated after the win, and a lucky penny that happened to be in the car.
      • Audio 1:46 — Austin – similarities to 98
  • Bubba Wallace gets second
    • Seems like he picked up a TON of fans
    • Audio 4:20 — Emotional in post-race press conference
