We have been counting down the days to the season-opening Daytona 500 and for the amount of days left to the 2011 Sprint Cup’s opening, revealing a magic number in NASCAR stats each day and what it means. As today’s the day, there’s no number left. Oh wait, yes there is: ZERO!
ZERO Top-10 finishes for Kenny Wallace in the Daytona 500. Wallace holds the record for most Daytona 500 starts—10—without a top-10 finish. Dave Blaney and Robert Pressley are next with nine starts. Wallace’s best finish in the 500 is 16th, which came in the rain-shortened 2003 Daytona 500 won by Michael Waltrip. Only 109 of the scheduled 200 laps were completed that day.
