The 2014 Daytona 500 went into a rain delay after 38 laps on Sunday afternoon, so Fox decided to run a replay of last year's race to fill time.
Apparently a lot of people didn't realize that was a replay.
By the end of the replay, Jimmie Johnson, last year's winner, was trending nationally on Twitter because people actually though he won the 2014 Daytona 500.
The rain delay on this year's race ended around 8:40pm on Sunday, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. was the winner!

Where were you when Jimmie Johnson broke the space-time continuum and won his third Daytona 500 despite an insidious rainstorm? #nascar— Nate Ryan (@nateryan) February 23, 2014
