RacingOne continues our countdown to the 50th running of the Daytona 500 with a look at Sterling Marlin's second 500 victory in the 1995 running of the classic. Marlin became the first driver to win back-to-back 500s since Cale Yarborough after holding off Dale Earnhardt, who had fresh tires, by 0.61 seconds at the finish line. Marlin started third, led 105 laps and averaged 141.71 mph in the race - his third of eight races at Daytona behind the wheel of the No. 4 Kodak Chevrolet for owner Larry McClure. In those eight races he posted an average finish of 10.1, including his last win at the speedway coming in the 1996 Pepsi 400.
