To say that this weekend’s Daytona 500 race was a close finish would not be doing it justice. The finish was about as close as you could get – the closest the race has ever been, actually.
Denny Hamlin edged out Martin Truex Jr. by mere inches to win his first ever Daytona 500 race – his first win in 10 attempts.
As you might expect, Twitter was loaded with reactions after Hamlin’s victory was confirmed in the race. Take a look at some of the reactions below in the Social Delta graph for the race.
