What had been a relatively tame Nationwide Series opener at Daytona, got rather wild over the final 20 laps.

Noted previously was a 14-car wreck on Lap 105. But it didn't end there. Another multi-car wreck ensued on Lap 115, setting up a two-lap sprint to the finish. But the icing on the cake came on the final lap when the leaders wrecked as Tony Stewart and Elliott Sadler tried to draft around the outside of the tandems of Kyle Busch-Kurt Busch and Joey Logano-Trevor Bayne.

Unfortunately, the tandems got together coming around the final turn, gifting the victory to James Buescher, who collected his first win in 35 Nationwide Series starts.
