NASCAR Nationwide Series At Daytona: Tony Stewart Wins DRIVE4COPD 300 With Dramatic Last-Second Pass

Clint Bowyer held a late lead and fended off charges from drafting partner Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kyle Busch, and Joey Logano — but it was Tony Stewart who made the move at the right moment to win today's DRIVE4COPD 300 at Daytona International Speedway.

A last lap run by Logano failed when he got loose in a turn and hit a wall, opening the door for Stewart and his drafting partner Landon Cassill to make a run at the Bowyer-Earnhardt team. And in the final turn, Stewart nudged just ahead of Bowyer, taking the checkered flag with no more than inches to spare.

A red flag with nine laps to go gave Bowyer and Earnhardt Jr. the lead in what became a sprint to the finish.

Danica Patrick, making her first NASCAR Nationwide Series start of the year, finished 14th, one lap behind the leaders.
