NASCAR: Bud Shootout Results

Kevin Harvick started near the rear of the field and had problems all night long, but was in the right place at the right time to capture the 2009 Budweiser Shootout at Daytona.

In the first 25 lap segment, Harvick was squeezed into the wall by Brian Vickers, suffering damage to his right front fender. He fell back out of the draft soon after that, but his crew made the necessary repairs during the 10-minute intermission to get him back into the race. He was near the front in the final laps and got a push from Denny Hamlin to take the lead from Jamie McMurray in turn three just seconds before the final caution came out freezing the field. Tony Stewart finished third, followed by Jeff Gordon and A. J. Allmendinger.

In this manufacturers' showdown, Chevy had three of the top four spots. McMurray had the top Ford. Allmendinger had the top Dodge. Kyle Busch, who finished tenth, had the top Toyota.

David Stremme slid up out of turn four and got into Greg Biffle with three laps, bringing out the seventh caution of the night and setting up a green-white-checkered finish. Harvick came up the middle and squeezed in front of Hamlin on the outside, who pushed him by McMurray. Seconds later, Casey Mears got into the rear of Jimmie Johnson causing a chain reaction accident and freezing the field with Harvick in front.

The cars were bouncing around wildly. The result was eight cautions in just 75 laps, starting early on lap 4. Some cars slowed in the middle of the field, bunching up the cars behind. When David Regan slowed Robbie Gordon got into the rear of him, knocking out the two main contenders for Rookie of the Year, Scott Speed and Joey Lagano. By the time of the green-white-checkered restart, only fifteen cars remained on the track out of the 28 that started the race. Another four or five were damaged in the final wreck.
