Martin Truex Jr. was well aware of Daytona International Speedway's halfway leader bonus and made sure he put himself in position to win the $200,000 prize during Monday night's Daytona 500.
Greg Biffle was leading the race heading to the final lap before halfway, but Truex backed up to Denny Hamlin from his second-place position and let the Toyota teammate push him past Biffle.
"Heck yeah!" Truex said when told he had led lap 100 and gotten the $200,000 prize.
"Now go get the other half," the team replied.
The halfway bonus was looked at as a gimmick by some when Daytona announced it, but that was when NASCAR officials feared the race would be dominated by two-car drafts.
With the pack racing back, the racing has still been exciting – even without the halfway bonus tempting the field.
What else does lap 100 mean? The Daytona 500 is now an "official" race, so it will be completed tonight even if rain comes.
