The Daytona 500 is a spectacle like none other in the racing world. With turns too steep to walk up and a crowd of a hundred thousand-plus donning legends on its shirts and hats, the February event ranks near the top of all championships in sports entertainment.
But the events that played out on Sunday may never be done again. With gentlemen and gentlewoman starting their engines just after noon on Sunday, the race quickly came to a halt â€” a 6-hour, 22-minute halt. With rain pouring down and showing no signs of letting up, drivers and fans took shelter until day turned to night.
