Defending DAYTONA 500 Champion Austin Dillon (left) joined Mickey Mouse to surprise young racing fan Jordan Wade, Feb. 12, 2019, at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Wade gave Dillon a lucky penny during the week before his DAYTONA 500 victory last year and Dillion had his Richard Childress Racing crew glue it to the dashboard of the car. Ahead of this year’s DAYTONA 500, the duo celebrated with family and friends at Magic Kingdom Park where Dillon presented Wade with a DAYTONA 500 champions ring in front of Cinderella Castle alongside the Harley J. Earl DAYTONA 500 trophy. (Preston Mack, photographer)
