Countdown to the DAYTONA 500: 14 days to go

By Reid Spencer NASCAR Wire Service

14: With 14 days left before the 2024 DAYTONA 500, we recall the 14th running of the Great American Race in 1972. A.J. Foyt won the event in dominating fashion, leading 167 laps of 200 laps. In fact, Super Tex was the only driver to complete all 200 circuits. Runner-up Charlie Glotzbach finished one lap down, and no other driver completed more than 194 laps. Foyt drove a 1971 Mercury for the Wood Brothers that day, bearing the number 21. But his number of preference—and the number that carried him to two of his four Indianapolis 500 victories—was 14. – Reid Spencer

Tune-in to the 2024 DAYTONA 500 on Sunday, February 18 at 2:30 p.m. ET on FOX, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
