Toyota Racing has emerged victorious over the Daytona 500 weekend, with wins and podium finishes through all events with the Camry and Tundra.

No other race in NASCAR is as coveted and revered as the season-opening Daytona 500. Winning it solidifies your name in the history books, but to win it twice as Denny Hamlin did on Sunday, puts him in a class of only 12 drivers who have doubled down and conquered the Daytona 500 two times.

The Daytona 500 was a hotly contested battle between Camry drivers who led over half of the race laps - 116 (of 207). However, Hamlin used a late restart to take the lead for the final time to clinch his second Daytona 500 victory, after also winning in 2016.

In addition to Hamlin's victory, Tundra driver Austin Hill kicked off the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series season with a win at Daytona Friday night. On Saturday, the long-awaited return of the Supra took centre stage in the NASCAR Xfinity Series where Brandon Jones finished third. All three drivers now lead their respective point standings after the first NASCAR races of the season.
