There are 24 days remaining before the 2014 Daytona 500; hence, the number for today is:

24: The car number driven by Jeff Gordon to all 88 of his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories, including six wins at Daytona International Speedway and three in the Daytona 500. Gordon's first victory at the 2.5-mile superspeedway came in July 1995, during the first of his four championship seasons. His last victory at the Birthplace of Speed came in February 2005, when he won the Daytona 500. That race ended in a green-white-checkered-flag finish and was the first at Daytona to go beyond its scheduled distance because of NASCAR's new overtime rules.
