Stewart Wins Nationwide Race at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Tony Stewart held off a last-lap
challenge from Kyle Busch and won the NASCAR Nationwide Series race Saturday at Daytona International Speedway.

It was the two-time Sprint Cup champion's fourth Daytona victory. He won the second-tier series' season opener last year, too.

Stewart passed 23 cars in 11 laps to get back into contention, then hung onto the lead as Busch, Carl Edwards and Clint Bowyer fought for position.

The victory was especially sweet after a rough morning, when Stewart and his new Stewart-Haas teammate Ryan Newman crashed in practice for Sunday's Daytona 500.
