There are six days remaining before the 2014 Daytona 500; hence, the number for today is:
6: The number of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories Bobby Allison recorded at Daytona International Speedway. The NASCAR Hall of Famer picked up his first win at the 2.5-mile superspeedway in the 1978 Daytona 500, 17 years after he first raced at the Birthplace of Speed. Allison would go on to win two more Daytona 500s, in 1982 and 1988. He was the last driver to sweep both NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Daytona in the same season (1982) before Jimmie Johnson matched the feat last year.
