The type of person that watches NASCAR in hopes of big crashes certainly got their fix on Saturday night during the 2012 Bud Shootout, but so did those who watch for the good bits of driving. At the end of a race that featured all kinds of wrecks and just three cars finishing without crash damage, one of the drivers who did sustain damage to his car came away with the win. Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart raced to the line at the end of the first green-white-checkered finish in an extended race, with Busch edging Stewart for the win by 1/100 of a second.
Here's the video:
The most amusing part of this video is probably Smoke's crew chief, Steve Addington, reminding his driver that the man behind him is, in fact, going to try to win the race. Busch timed his move perfectly to just barely get by Stewart, and it wasn't even his best move of the race.
Busch miraculously saved his car from wrecking on two separate occasions during the race, something most of the drivers weren't able to do. Only 10 out of the 25 entered cars finished on the lead lap.
