Kyle Busch was unable to complete his collection of crown jewel victories by winning the Daytona 500, having been involved in yet another accident.
The two-time Cup Series winner has accomplished almost as much as any driver could hope to in his 18 seasons of competition, but the “Great American Race” is still off his list of career victories.
On the last lap, Busch was in fifth place and making a furious charge to Joey Logano’s back bumper for the lead when he was touched from behind, sending him spinning into the outside SAFER barrier. During the race’s allotted 200 circuits, the No. 8 Chevrolet driver led six circuits. Due to two overtime periods, this race went on longer than any other in history, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. came out on top. Busch vented his anger by saying that he comes to Daytona to learn where and when he will crash each year.
