Winner at Daytona: Nick Patterson, former baseball and football player at WSSU, on winning pit-crew team

Nick Patterson, like his pit-crew teammates for driver Michael McDowell, had to wait to start celebrating early Monday morning at the end of the Daytona 500. “Was it official, we didn’t know,” said Patterson, who is from Clemmons and played baseball and football at Winston-Salem State. “We saw it happen and No. 34 crossed the line first, but we didn’t know if a caution flag would come out or what.”
