As Nick Sanchez took his first career NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series victory in the series‘ season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway, he also became a pivotal part in Chevrolet‘s history at the famed Florida superspeedway. Sanchez and the No. 2 Rev Racing Silverado RST team earned Chevrolet its milestone 100th all-time points-paying NASCAR win at Daytona International Speedway — further extending its record as the winningest manufacturer in NASCAR history at the track.

“To earn 100 NASCAR wins at Daytona International Speedway is a monumental achievement in Chevy‘s storied racing history,” said Scott Bell, Vice President, Global Chevrolet. “On behalf of everyone at Chevrolet, thank you to all the drivers and teams who have contributed wins over the years that brought us to this milestone. Chevrolet is proud to be the winningest manufacturer at one of NASCAR‘s most iconic venues.”

Chevrolet‘s legacy at the “World Center of Racing” began early when Bob Welborn drove his 1959 Chevrolet to the win in NASCAR‘s first-ever race at Daytona International Speedway. Now, over 60 years later, the Bowtie brand has accumulated 50 all-time NASCAR Cup Series wins, 46 all-time NASCAR Xfinity Series wins and four NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series wins at Daytona International Speedway — a combined record that continues to raise the mark for its manufacturer competitors. Sanchez is the 48th different driver to carry the Bowtie brand to victory lane in the NASCAR‘s national ranks at Daytona International Speedway.

The 2024 NASCAR season-opening race weekend at Daytona International Speedway continues with Saturday‘s NASCAR Xfinity Series United Rentals 300, followed by the NASCAR Cup Series 66th running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday.
