Tony Stewart started from pole and stayed in front all night as he had the most dominate car in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona and his pit crew never let him down as they never lost a spot on pit road. The race seen alot of cautions which took out some big name drivers as in Mark Martin, Dale Earnhardt Jr, and a host of others.

As the race began to venture into the closing laps more accidents started to happen and that set up a dash to the end that would look alot like Talladega when Kyle Busch took the lead on the final lap and tryed to block Tony for the win he was turned into the wall hard and got nailed by a pack of cars, thankfully Kyle was ok and Tony won.

Jimmie Johnson finished in second Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards and Kurt Busch round out the top 5 as the series heads to Chicago next weekend for another Saturday night race Kyle Busch won that race last year passing Jimmie Johnson in a green white checker finish.

Tony Stewart padded his points leader over Jeff Gordon tonight he leads Gordon by 180 points going to Chicagoland Speedway.

Tony looks to be on a roll and is in the best position i think that he has ever been to capture another cup title but it will be interesting after Richmond when the chase starts coming off the win tonight at Daytona it was Tony's third win in the summer race and second points win not counting the All Star Race in Charlotte back in May.
