Kyle Busch Crashes As Tony Stewart Wins The Coke Zero 400: Video
The finish of tonight’s Coke Zero 400 at Daytona was filled with fireworks.
Kyle Busch passed Tony Stewart with one lap to go. Stewart then made a move to the inside on the final turns, which Busch was able to block. Tony then moved to the outside and looked to be making the pass, but Kyle Busch then tried to cut up the track to make another block.
As you can see in the video, this didn’t work, as Busch flew into the wall, went airborne momentarily, got rear-ended by Kasey Kahne, then nailed again in the door by Joey Logano. Several other drivers were also involved in the crash at the finish line.
You can chalk this up as a just a racing accident, or you can blame Busch for attempting a 2nd block and turning himself into the wall. As the announcers predicted, he got turned for mirror driving.
Kyle Busch refused to comment after the race, while Stewart found it difficult to celebrate his win.
“It’s just a bad situation,” Stewart said. “It’s not bad because we’re put in a bad position. It just is what it is. I don’t feel as much gratification from winning this race as I probably should, I guess, because I don’t like the way the outcome happened.”
This will certainly spark further debate about restrictor plate racing, which gives fans entertaining but dangerous finishes. If every race at Daytona or Talladega ends like this, sooner or later a driver or fan will get seriously injured or killed.
