"There's a Trophy to Be Won, Let's Go Get It"
Although Jimmie was locked into the Daytona 500 with a front row starting spot, it didn't mean he would be content to just cruise around the 2.5mi race track during his Duel race. As crew chief Chad Knaus put it "There's a trophy to be won, let's go get it." And get it they did. After leading 40 laps of the 60 lap race, Jimmie battled his way to the front during a green-white-checkered finish and took the 48 car to Victory Lane.
