DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Jimmie Johnson has won the Daytona 500 for the second time.

Johnson held off Dale Earnhardt Jr. to become the 10th driver with multiple wins in “The Great American Race.”

Danica Patrick was running third heading to the final lap Sunday, but she dropped back to eighth as everyone jostled for position.

Still, it was the highest finish ever for a woman in NASCAR’s signature event. Janet Guthrie finished 11th in 1980.

Johnson, a five-time champion, also won the 500 in 2006. But he’s had some tough finishes in recent years, including a 42nd-place flameout in 2012.
