After Martin Truex Jr. lost the closest Daytona 500 finish in history, he received a little consolation from the former driver who lost the second-closest Daytona 500 finish.

I feel your pain @MartinTruex_Jr You are a class act and great competitor.

Martin was passed by Kevin Harvick on the last lap of the 2007 Daytona 500, as the two put on an incredible show as they raced back to the line, just as Truex and winner Denny Hamlin did on Sunday.

And, yes, both Martins are class acts and great competitors.
