Austin Dillon and Ryan Blaney were not the only big winners when the checkered flag waved to signal the end of Sunday's Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway.
Sure, Dillon won his second career race at Daytona and secured a berth in the NASCAR Cup Series postseason while Blaney outdueled Martin Truex Jr. to earn the final playoff position on points.
However, one NASCAR bettor turned a $13.49 bet into a $999,433.63 payout after cashing a four-leg parlay of top-10 finishers.

As you can see in the ticket above, the incredible parlay combined Cody Ware at +2000, B.J. McLeod at +2000, Landon Cassill at +1500 and David Ragan at +950 to finish in the top 10.
If one leg ultimately failed, the entire bet would have been a loser.
However, with finishes of fourth for Cassill, sixth for Ware, seventh for McLeod and ninth for Ragan, lightning struck, cashing the winner of a lifetime with a little help from the Action Network's Nick Giffen and co-host Jordan McAbee on the "Stacking Dennys" podcast.
While Giffen didn't ultimately make the bet, we're thrilled that he helped provide the analysis allowing someone to take such a big swing.
And speaking of big swings, did we mention that Giffen recently nailed a 130-1 bet on Kevin Harvick?
Of course, that line was only available for a moment, so make sure to follow Giffen and all of our betting analysts in the Free Action Network App.
What was originally schedule to be run on Saturday night, the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona was postponed due to rain until 10 a.m. ET on Sunday.
After getting underway, rain once again poured at Daytona, ultimately causing a wreck with just 22 laps to go.
While the race would have been technically official since it was past the half-way mark, NASCAR ultimately decided to wait out the precipitation to run the entire distance.
There were mixed opinions whether NASCAR should have called the race or try to finish.
However, we know one bettor who sure is happy that NASCAR stayed the course.
