Exactly one week remains before the highly-anticipated 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season officially begins with its most celebrated event: the DAYTONA 500. Campers are already parking at the famous Daytona International Speedway and the teams are headed South for this most traditional event on the schedule. The number 7 is one of only two single digit car numbers (also No. 6) that has never been on a DAYTONA 500-winning car, When it comes to winning and the number 7, however, there is important history. Richard Petty, the NASCAR Hall of Famer and sport’s icon holds the all-time record with seven DAYTONA 500 victories, a mark many expect will never be equaled. - Holly Cain
