Finch, Busch Make Strong Bid for Daytona Win Friday

Daytona, FL-- James Finch, Kurt Busch and Phoenix Racing the defending champs in this event. They all decided to go with the paint scheme from the movie "Days of Thunder", Cole Trickle's green colored "City Chevrolet" which turned out to be a good car indeed.

Starting 7th, Busch able to work his way to the lead early on, had that lead for a couple of laps.

Eventually he would drop back a few spots, but stayed near the lead the entire one-hundred lap race.

With four to go, a caution bunched them up for a restart and a sprint to the finish.

Matt Kenseth and James Buescher would dart out in front, Busch down low here fighting for a shot at third place.

Kenseth hangs on for the win with Buescher second, Sadler, with Busch pushing from behind gets third. Kurt and team Phoenix get 4th! Big night indeed for James Finch.
