Kevin Harvick Wins One Wild Budweiser Shootout
DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. — Talk about a shootout. They’ll be talking about this one for years to come.
Kevin Harvick drove his Richard Childress Chevrolet to the front of the field on the very last lap Saturday night to capture one of the wildest Budweiser Shootouts in the history of Daytona International Speedway.
Harvick cruised across the finish line after a split-second crash behind him and runner-up Jamie McMurray wiped out a group of contenders, including defending Sprint Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson, contenders Kyle Busch and Brian Vickers, as well as Casey Mears and pole-sitter Paul Menard.
The stage was set for a 190-mile-an-hour showdown. when a caution fell with three laps remaining in the two-part 75-lap race. David Stremme nipped Greg Biffle coming out of turn four sending Biffle into the outside wall. Biffle had to realize it just wasn’t his night since he had been a victim of several other miscues by various drivers earlier in the race.
