DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Tony Stewart charged past Daytona 500
winner Matt Kenseth on the final lap Saturday night, then held on
to win as his challengers stacked up in a melee at Daytona
Kenseth and Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle likely
would have made one final attempt to beat Stewart, but Biffle
wiggled and cars began sliding all over the track.
Nobody could then catch Stewart, who sailed away to his third
win of the season. The defending Sprint Cup Series champion is tied
with Brad Keselowski for most wins this season.
Roughly 90 minutes before the race, NASCAR announced AJ
Allmendinger had been suspended for failing a random drug test. Sam
Hornish Jr. replaced him in the car.
