There are 37 days left before the 2014 Daytona 500; hence, the number for today is:
37: The number of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories recorded by 1970 champion Bobby Isaac. An undisputed short-track master, Isaac notched all but one of his 37 career victories driving the K&K Insurance Dodge fielded by owner Nord Krauskopf. Though Isaac ran his first NASCAR Sprint Cup race in 1961 and his last in 1976, 35 of his wins were compressed into a four-year span from 1968-1971. Isaac was inducted into the National Motorsports Press Association Hall of Fame in 1979, two years after his death from a heart attack at age 45.
