DAYTONA BEACH Fla. – Four NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers braved near freezing temperatures Sunday morning at Daytona International Speedway to participate in a race of a different kind.

Jimmie Johnson, Michael Waltrip, Kasey Kahne and Aric Almirola joined nearly 1400 registered runners in the Daytona Beach half marathon. The field set off just before sunrise at the Speedway with temps hovering near freezing and a stiff breeze adding a wind chill factor. The 13.6 mile course took the runners from the Speedway to Daytona Beach and back.

Both Johnson and Kahne finished inside the top 10 in their respective groups.MORE>>>
