DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Tony Stewart has won at Daytona International Speedway after contact with Kyle Busch sent Busch hard into the wall right before the finish line
Busch passed Stewart for the lead right before they began the final lap Saturday night, but the Sprint Cup Series points leader chased Busch down and closed in on his bumper. Slight contact sent Busch drifting up the track, but he slid back down to maintain as his lead.

As he tried to block Stewart's passing attempt, Stewart hooked the left bumper to send Busch sailing into the wall. It triggered a multiple car crash behind them, but Stewart sailed through for the win.

It was Stewart's second win in his first season as owner of his own team.
