1997 Daytona 500
"The legend of Jeff Gordon was born at the 1997 Daytona 500. The 25-year-old out dueled a field of veteran drivers that included Bill Elliott and Dale Earnhardt, Sr. to become the youngest winner of NASCAR's grandest event. Earnhardt, running hard, once again found bad luck at Daytona, hitting the wall, striking Dale Jarrett, and flying over Ernie Irvan into the infield. Though he gamely climbed back into his car to finish the race, it was disappointment number 19 for Earnhardt.
But this race was more about the daring passing of the young Gordon, the 1-2-3 sweep of the Hendrick Racing Team and a promise Gordon made to owner Rick Hendrick. Hendrick was at home continuing his fight against leukemia when he got a call from his young driver. "Jeff told me last night, 'I'm gonna win this race. I'm gonna make you smile omorrow.' And he did," Hendrick said.
