DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Kurt Busch has won his second race of
Speedweeks by holding off Regan Smith on the last lap to win the
first Daytona 500 qualifying race.

Busch used a big push from Smith to move into the lead after a
caution set up a two-lap sprint to the finish of Thursday's
150-mile race. Smith then stayed in line behind Busch as they
circled Daytona International Speedway, trying to set up a pass for
the win.

Busch blocked the move as they closed in on the checkered flag.

The victory is the second for Busch in less than a week. He also
won the exhibition Budweiser Shootout.

The finishing order of Thursday's two qualifying races are used
to set the field for the season-opening Daytona 500.
