There are 33 days remaining before the 2014 Daytona 500; hence the number for today is:

33: The number of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories accumulated by one of NASCAR's most charismatic stars, Glenn "Fireball" Roberts, who will be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Jan. 29 as a member of the fifth class to be enshrined.

Roberts won a single-season-high eight races in 1957 and followed that with six victories and an 11th-place finish in the standings in 1958, despite competing in just 10 of 51 scheduled events.
