NASCAR : The last lap of the Daytona 500 was utterly thrilling

What a finish! Matt Kenseth did everything he could to defend his lead but lost out to Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. who staged a wheel-banging sprint to the finish line. It was the closest Daytona 500 finish in history, the first for a non-American car, and it fulfilled a childhood dream for Hamlin who wrote a school assignment titled “My wish is to win the Daytona 500” when he was just 7 years old. Brilliant.
