Stewart Wins First Nationwide Series Race at Daytona

Tony Stewart won the Busch Nationwide race today in Daytona, beating Kyle Busch and, you guessed it, Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the end of the race, with Busch blocking Jr. to finish second. Kyle also came in second the night before in the truck series race, losing to Todd Bodine and driving past Johnny Benson for second. Appears tomorrow’s race is going to be a good one, with Kyle and Dale running so well every time they get in a car, they are going to be hard to beat.

Polesitter Tony Stewart repelled a strong challenge from teammate Kyle Busch and Dale Earnhardt Jr. to win the Camping World 300 Nationwide Series race Saturday at Daytona International Speedway.

Stewart surged to the lead on Lap 117 of 120 and stayed there as the rest of the field diced for position behind him. On the final lap, Busch blocked Earnhardt’s last-ditch attempt to improve his position and all but assured the victory for Stewart, who crossed the finish line .259 seconds ahead of Busch, with Earnhardt .412 seconds back.

Brian Vickers ran fourth, followed by Matt Kenseth, rookie Bryan Clauson, Greg Biffle, Denny Hamlin, David Ragan and defending series champion Carl Edwards. Source: Stewart starts, finishes first in N’wide season-opener

Nascar Busch Series Has a Date in Montreal

I first mentioned the possibility of a Busch series race in Canada here, and it looks like they have a date set in Montreal, at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve racetrack. The race will be August 4, the day before the cup race in Pocono and it takes the place of the Busch race in Martinsville. This will also take the number of road course races to three.

This has been one of Nascar’s goals for awhile now, to get coverage all over North America and to have races throughout, now, anyone in North America will be able to sit home and watch a Nascar race, which will be a big boost for ratings. Nascar has drawn more and more Canadian fans to the northernmost races, such as Chicago, Michigan, New Hampshire and Watkins Glenn, and as a matter of fact, the Daytona 500 was the most watched race on Canadian tv this season.

Wonder how many Busch Whackers will make the race north of the border?
