Trevor Bayne Wins Daytona 500: NASCAR Power Rankings Coming Out of Daytona

It's undoubtedly one of the biggest upsets in NASCAR history. 

Driving the legendary No. 21 Ford for Wood Brothers Racing, 20-year-old Trevor Bayne won the Daytona 500 Sunday in just his second career start. He's essentially the first driver in the history of the Great American Race to win it in his first start (Lee Petty did it in 1959, but that was the inaugural race), and he became the second driver to win in his second career start (Jamie McMurray did it in 2002).

Unfortunately for those hoping for a full-season run by Bayne, the full-time Nationwide Series driver is ineligible for Sprint Cup points. As a result, runner-up Carl Edwards leads third-place David Gilliland and fourth-place Bobby Labonte in the Sprint Cup standings.

Who are the top 20 drivers in the Sprint Cup series after the Daytona 500?

Here's a look at the power rankings.
