Kyle Busch Snatches Daytona Victory After Photo Finish

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series 2014 season began with an astounding photo finish between Timothy Peters and Kyle Busch. Tonight the trophy will be given to ‘Rowdy’ who made an outside pass on Peters to snatch the win by only 0.017 hundredths of a second.

The victory marks Busch’s first career win in the NCWTS at Daytona International Speedway after finishing second three times prior to tonight and the excitement was obvious in victory lane.

“I didn’t think I would be able to make that move (the outside pass on Peters).” Busch commented to Fox Sports 1 in victory lane.

Busch, who isn’t eligible for points in the CWTS, will attempt to complete the sweep by winning in the CWTS, NNS and NSCS all in the same weekend, which would be an amazing feat at Daytona.

Timothy Peters finished second after stealing the lead within five laps to go before being dethroned by Busch in the tri-oval. Johnny Sauter captured the final podium finish after riding top five the entire event.

The pivotal factor in tonight’s event came with 27 laps to go when the ‘big one’ occurred in the turn’s one and two. Mason Mingus, Parker Kligerman, Darrell Wallace Jr, Caleb Holman, Sean Corr, Brian Ickler and Joey Coulter were involved in the catastrophic incident. Luckily, none of the drivers were injured – showing how much safety has improved.

Busch’s victory marks his third career at Daytona – one in ARCA, one in NNS, and tonight’s race. The NCWTS and Busch will return to the racetrack next month at Martinsville Speedway.
