Denny Hamlin was one of the few drivers able to finish the Daytona 500 on Sunday.And after a crash-packed final stage wiped out most of the field and led to a pair of red-flag delays, Hamlin emerged victorious for his second career Daytona 500 win (his first came in 2016). It was a bounce-back performance by the 38-year-old driver, who went winless last season.

Gibbs, the co-founder of the Joe Gibbs Racing organization under which Hamlin races. Gibbs died last month of a degenerative neurological disease at age 49.”It was just one of those days where I felt like it was meant to be,” Hamlin told reporters. “Hats off to Kyle as well. I know he was eagerly wanting his first victory in the Daytona 500, but today we just weren’t going to be denied.”The whole (Gibbs) family — they did so much for me over the course of my career. This one is for J.D. We’re desperately going to miss him the rest of our lives. His legacy still lives on through Joe Gibbs Racing and I’m proud to do this for them.”Sporting News tracked lap-by-lap results and highlights from the 2019 Daytona 500.
