Daytona 500 overnight TV ratings hit 10-season low

Daytona 500 overnight TV ratings hit 10-season low

Danica Patrick, likely racing her last Daytona 500, will start 28th.

After the race, Dillon celebrated and dedicated the win to Dale Earnhardt Sr., who won the Daytona 500 for the first time exactly 20 years ago. In her 61 career Xfinity Series races, Patrick took one pole at Daytona in 2012, finished in the top 10 seven times and finished in the top 5 once, with that lone top 5 finish being a 4th place effort at Las Vegas in the 2011 season.

The 6-foot-2 Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers quarterback, was wearing a black T-shirt and sunglasses as he stood next to the diminutive Patrick before the race started.

"Truthfully, this all won't sink in for a long time but seeing that race vehicle, I want to go hug it", said Dillon.

One of the most marketable athletes in North America, Patrick will run one more race before calling it a career, competing in IndyCar's Indianapolis 500 in May.

"I hope they remember me as a great driver and that I was a woman and it was really cool to watch and be there for", Patrick said.

Patrick never had a top-five finish for Stewart-Hass Racing.

She crossed her pins as she perched herself on a chair to give a press conference Sunday before the event in Daytona Beach, Florida. I still have one more (race).

Patrick, 25, confirmed that she was dating Rodgers in January.

The win was Dillon's second career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win and his first at Daytona.

"It just wasn't meant to be today", Patrick told Fox televsion afterwards.

Austin Dillon got a tattoo late Sunday night/early Monday morning to celebrate his Daytona 500 victory, but his wife Whitney is likely the only person who will get see it.

Charlize called Danica's last NASCAR race "very special, ' vaunted her history in the sport as 'pretty incredible" and confessed: 'The girl in me secretly is, obviously, cheering for her'.

"There's a lot of pressure on me to perform because I've had a little bit of everything". She wrapped up her career with a race-ending wreck, sending her to the garage early. Still have one more (race). "It is not a stock vehicle, but still have one more".

Dillon was 7 when Earnhardt won his Daytona 500 and was photographed alongside his brother with The Intimidator on that victorious day in 1998.

Then she rides off for good.
