NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., signs autographs before practice for Sunday's NASCAR auto race at Talladega Superspeedway, Friday, April 29, 2016, in Talladega, Ala. And coming back from this injury, we've worked so hard. As you go along, obviously previous year going the way it did, having such a great beginning of Speedweeks, qualifying well, and getting to the XFINITY race and running good in it, things were just going really good, and as the Sunday rolled around, that just kind of went to prove how fast things can go south.

Perhaps the most memorable part of Jarrett's win (also the first Daytona 500 victory for team owner Joe Gibbs) was the call from the TV booth, by his father, Ned.

The race was just the second win of Jarrett's Hall of Fame career.

"I think that it was a shock to all of us that one year into a three-year deal that there was a problem, but everything that was ever asked of me I did to the very best of my ability", Patrick said. Teammate Chase Elliott will start on the pole.
