When NASCAR Cup Series rookie Austin Cindric did the unthinkable by winning the Daytona 500 this past Sunday, a race in which he had a staggering 25-1 odds to win, he made sure he treated his crew high class after the race…
Nah, we’re not talking some fancy *pinky up* five star restaurant, we’re talking the great Steak ‘n Shake.
The 23-year-old (the third youngest to ever win the Daytona 500) told TMZ he couldn’t think of a better place to celebrate than the iconic burger and milkshake fast food joint:
“We took everybody — including the Harley J. Earl trophy — and we went to Steak ‘n Shake.
We closed the place down after midnight, and they stayed open for us, and we killed a bunch of burgers and milkshakes.”
He said he knew he’d have a busy day the next day, so he thought he’d keep things simple and enjoy a nice night with his family and crew following the major win.
He also couldn’t contain his excitement over the win:
“It’s a dream come true. It’s every racer’s dream to just go to the Daytona 500 and compete.
But to do it with an overtime restart with everything on the line, and be able to come across and win the biggest race of the year, it was awesome to get it done.”
