DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Kyle Busch survived a drag race with Carl Edwards to win a wreck-filled race at Daytona International Speedway under a caution flag. It's his sixth win on the Sprint Cup circuit. Busch has 12 wins spanning all three of NASCAR's top series.
Busch was racing side-by-side with Edwards with just over a lap to go when a multicar accident erupted behind them. The field was immediately frozen. Busch and Edwards had to wait an anxious several minutes as NASCAR reviewed its scoring data to determine who was out front at the time of the caution. Matt Kenseth ran third, followed by Kurt Busch in fourth.
Busch is the Sprint Cup Series points leader by 182 points over Dale Earnhardt Junior.
