2012 Daytona 500 Live Results: Clint Bowyer Runs Out Of Gas

Just as green-flag pit stops were beginning with 70 laps left in the Daytona 500, a yellow flag was displayed for Clint Bowyer, who ran out of gas on the backstretch.

Prior to pit stops, Denny Hamlin had been leading, followed by fellow Toyota driver Martin Truex Jr. in second and Ford driver Greg Biffle running third. This is Hamlin's seventh start in "The Great American Race," and in his six prior starts the Joe Gibbs Racing driver has never finished better than 13th.

Tony Stewart, who had completed his pit stop just before the caution came out, inherited the lead from Hamlin. Stewart is looking for his first Daytona 500 win in 14 starts.

Pre-race favorite and 2009 500 winner Matt Kenseth has been battling overheating issues all night, but is on the lead lap and is currently running in the ninth position.

With 60 laps to go, Hamlin continues to lead Biffle.
