If Danica Patrick can become the 10th driver to start at the pole and go on to win the Daytona 500 on Sunday, she would claim the Harley J. Earl Trophy, which is about 4 feet tall and 5 feet wide and shaped like Daytona International Speedway. It is named after the second commissioner of NASCAR. The real award remains at a museum near the track, but the winner gets to take home a miniature version. Her crew chief, Tony Gibson, would win the Cannonball Baker Trophy, named after the first commissioner of NASCAR.
