((Dale Jarrett is a three time winner in the Daytona 500. Sterling Marlin is the last driver to win back to back 500's. Michael Waltrip won the very first race of his career here two seasons ago. And this week Ward Burton returns to the scene of his only Daytona win just last year. While he can stick his chest out a little further, satisfaction isn't in Ward's vocabulary.
