(VIDEO) Stewart Escapes Melee To Win At Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — There was no fire or rain. Still, another frantic finish at Daytona International Speedway.

Tony Stewart emerged the winner, charging past Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth on the last lap and holding on as the challengers stacked up behind him Saturday night in one of Daytona’s trademark wrecks.

“I don’t even remember what happened that last lap,” said Stewart.

Stewart has 18 victories at Daytona, second only to the late Dale Earnhardt. None of his wins are in the Daytona 500, though. Stewart is 0-for-14 in NASCAR’s biggest race of the year and was a non-factor in February, when the race was delayed a day by rain and then stopped more than two hours for a massive jet dryer fire.
