Jenny Will announces a raffle prize winner during the Daytona 500 Watch Party at the Iowa Speedway. The speedway gave away multiple prizes during the event along with memorabilia from last year’s races and prizes from vendors and sponsors of the racetrack.

NASCAR fans come from around the state to enjoy the watch party. The race was put under a red flag, delaying the race for more than four hours. The race ended in storybook fashion, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. winning the Daytona 500 for the second time as well as breaking a 57-race streak without a trip to victory lane.
