Stewart Wins Third Bud Shootout at Daytona - Big Favorite for The 500

Two-time Nextel Cup Champion Tony Stewart started the season off on the right foot by winning the Bud Shootout Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway.

The 70 lap exhibition race is the unofficial start to the NASCAR season and features Bud Pole winners from the previous season as well as previous Bud Shootout winners.

Stewart bested this years 21 car field for his third Bud Shootout victory of his Cup Series career. On the sixty-second lap Stewart got Kyle Busch loose entering turn 1 and as they say the rest is history.

Stewart cruised to the finish with David Gilliland finishing second and Kurt Busch taking third.

Stewart was listed as 5/1 odds to win for Saturday nights race. Bettors who backed Stewart enjoyed a $5 payout for every $1 bet.

A race at Daytona wouldn't be complete without some fireworks. On the final lap of Saturdays event Dale Earnhardt Jr. made contact with Elliot Sadler which caused Sadler to get into the wall and collect Earnhardt Jr., Greg Biffle and last years winner Denny Hamlin as his car careened back across the track. Luckily no one was injured and the cars used in the Shootout are not the same cars which will be used for the Daytona 500 next week.

Next up is Daytona Bud Pole Qualifying this Sunday at 2pm. This year 61 drivers will be attempting to qualify for the 43 entry positions for the Daytona 500.
