Video: Kyle Busch Crashes in Final Lap, Tony Stewart Wins at Daytona

The Coke Zero 400 at Daytona didn’t end as hoped for Kyle Busch on Saturday. He was leading down the stretch and was trying to hold off Tony Stewart who was angling to make a pass to win the race. Busch held him off at first but then had a problem the second time that Stewart tried to make a pass. Check out the video:

It’s hard to say who’s really at fault but it seems to me that it was just a case of bad luck for Busch. He had to try and stay in front of Stewart to win the race and the bump to the rear sent him into the wall. Even Stewart wasn’t happy with the result despite winning the race:

“I just don’t like it to end that way,” Stewart said. “You know, you work hard to get to this level and you don’t want to see races decided by guys wrecking coming to the finish line. That’s not what it’s about. Maybe I am being hard on myself, I don’t know. But I just don’t like the way that ended up.”

People generally say that in NASCAR it comes down to who has the best car. The more I see Tony Stewart the more I’m convinced that drivers make a difference — in Stewart’s case, a big difference.

    That’s what I hate about nascar…you could be the greatest driver ever, but one guy bumps you, one flat tire, one blown engine, one little thing out of your control…and you’re in last place. Can’t stand that. If Michael Jordan’s shoe comes untied he isn’t done for the night.
