1999 Daytona 500

1999 Daytona 500

The 41st annual Daytona 500 was held February 14, 1999 at Daytona International Speedway. Jeff Gordon won the pole. In winning the race as well, he became the first Daytona 500 pole sitter to win the race since Bill Elliott in 1987. The race is also known for a determined Dale Earnhardt repeatedly trying to pass Jeff Gordon for the lead on the final lap, but Gordon outraced Earnhardt to the finish and made great blocks on Earnhardt. The race had a ten car pileup, causing Dale Jarrett to flip twice. He was uninjured.
