Daytona 500 Laps Winding Down, And It's Anybody's Race

With 37 laps to go in the 2011 Daytona 500, it's anybody's race – and we have absolutely no idea who's going to win.

There have been a race-record 61 lead changes (and counting), breaking the previous record of 60 set back in 1974. But there have also been a Daytona 500 record for cautions (12 and counting).

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has looked strong, but so has the Richard Childress Racing duo of Clint Bowyer and Paul Menard. Underdog Regan Smith has been the best pusher of the race, and whoever he pushes goes to the front; the same can be said for rookie Trevor Bayne.

The winner could be one of those drivers, or really any other. It's truly wide open at this point.

Whatever happens, we're live up above the finish line ready to give you all the post-race coverage you need.

Stay tuned. It's about to get good...
