Busch was leading on a restart with nine laps to go and opted to start from the bottom lane after Hamlin told Busch's crew that they would "race it out" without working together.

Hamlin ultimately would display his gratitude to the Gibbs family by putting J.D's signature above his vehicle door and delivering the race team numerous trips to Victory Lane.

Joe Gibbs Racing and Fox Sports paid tribute to Gibbs early in the race. "I'm just thrilled. I think J.D. had the best view of everything", he added.

J.D. Gibbs, who died tragically last month at age 49, was not almost the driver Hamlin would become. He invested his occupational life in our race team.

It was J.D. that discovered Hamlin's racing abilities and signed him to the team.

"That tells you, I get the wrong end of everything".

Kyle Busch finished second and Erik Jones was third for the 78-year-old owner. Hendrick Motorsports did it in 1997 with Jeff Gordon, Terry Labonte, and Ricky Craven.

"I don't believe that just happened", Joe Gibbs said. "Maybe this proves the first one wasn't a fluke". You never wish any harm on any racer on the track but like football, the dangers are clear and present, and any human moving at that speed and velocity face the inevitable be it, Jimmy Garoppalo getting taken out for an entire season on a run play or cars at a Daytona 500 crashing in a legitimate blaze of glory. Throughout the weekend, there are tons of fan activities planned at Atlanta Motor Speedway, along with food and drink options and vendors selling every kind of racing collectible you could ever want.

Tuesday to a report of a person spray painting " #MeToo " on the statue, the Sarasota Police Department said in a statement. At the time it was widely lauded as an expression of joy across the U.S. when Japan surrendered.

Logano, who won the Cup Series a year ago, is also at 6/1.

"I'm not a Gibbs driver but for what J.D. has done for my career is the reason why I'm sitting here today", Logano said.

Hamlin past year suffered through his first winless season in the Cup Series and made a crew chief change during the offseason.

Denny Hamlin made his full-time NASCAR Cup Series debut in 2006.

Hamlin's first Daytona 500 victory was in a photo finish against Martin Truex Jr. and the celebration was a blur.

Coming a little more than a month after J.D. Gibbs' death due to a rare a neurological disorder, the win had a storybook feel.

"I'm going to hate tomorrow, but I'm going to love the rest of my life", Hamlin said.

"It's just special for me to be able to deliver that to him in a special way", Hamlin said.
