1949: Red Byron wins the second race in NASCAR’s premier series, taking the lead from Gober Sosebee with six laps left on the Daytona Beach and Road Course. Tim Flock finished second with Frank Mundy third. Sosebee, who led first 34 laps, faded to an eighth-place finish. It was the first of two wins in NASCAR’s inaugural season for Byron, who went on to win the first Strictly Stock (now Sprint Cup) championship.
