Daytona 500 2013 live results: Danica Patrick makes history

Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports

Danica Patrick made history at the 2013 Daytona 500, becoming the first woman to lead a lap under green.

Update: Jimmie Johnson wins the Daytona 500. Danica finishes in the top-10.

The Daytona 500 is at the halfway point and Danica Patrick has made history by becoming the first woman to lead a lap in NASCAR's biggest event. The historic moment occurred following a Lap 90 caution for debris.

Patrick was soon passed afterwards for the lead by Matt Kenseth and while in traffic, Patrick nearly lost control of her car but was able to recover nicely. She currently sits third in the running order.

Kenseth continues to lead and has led the most laps on the afternoon, pacing the field for a total of 48 laps.

Running second is Kenseth's Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, Denny Hamlin, who has passed more cars than anyone today after starting the race at the rear of the field.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has surprisingly had a quiet race, but has worked his way up to eighth from the 19th starting position.

A six-car wreck on Lap 32 knocked contenders Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne out of the race, and there have been three cautions for a total of 10 laps.

Ten different drivers have exchanged the lead 16 times.
