Michael McDowell won the 2021 Daytona 500 on Sunday, taking his first victory in top-level car racing in his 358th career start. McDowell was in third, and made the move for the upset victory after escaping a last-lap crash triggered when Brad Keselowski, who was in second place, tapped his Penske teammate Joey Logano, who was in the lead. “I just can’t believe it,” McDowell, a 100-to-1 underdog, told FOX Sports. “I’ve just got to thank God. So many years just grinding it out and hoping for an opportunity like this.” Early in the race, a 16-car crash took out several contenders, including Daytona 500 pole winner Alex Bowman, after just 15 laps.
