CBSSports - NASCAR rookie Austin Cindric has just won the 2022 Daytona 500. Within only a few short years, Cindric has clearly come up in the ranks as a highly proficient road course racer, but went through a long feeling-out process trying to figure out how to be fast on ovals. Then, things just clicked and now, he's etched his name in Daytona 500 history. Cindric is now the ninth driver in history to earn his first career Cup win in the Daytona 500, and the second in a row to do so. Cindric now joins a group that includes Tiny Lund (1963), Mario Andretti (1967), Pete Hamilton (1970), Derrike Cope (1990), Sterling Marlin (1994), Michael Waltrip (2001), Trevor Bayne (2011), and Michael McDowell (2021). A big congratulations to Austin Cindric on his amazing race!
