There are 23 days remaining before the 2014 Daytona 500; hence, the number for today is:

23: The number of times Joe Gibbs Racing driver Matt Kenseth has been running at the finish in 28 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts at Daytona International Speedway. That is a testament to Kenseth's ability to stay out of harm's way at a track where trouble is ever present. And Kenseth does not just finish races. Oftentimes he is in contention for the victory, having won the Daytona 500 twice (2009 and 2012) and having finished in the top 10 13 times in his 28 starts.
