Harvick Wins Budweiser Shootout at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Kevin Harvick has won the Budweiser Shootout for the second consecutive season, blowing past Greg Biffle in the exhibition race.

Harvick was in fourth when the racing resumed with two laps to go at Daytona International Speedway. He quickly pulled out of line to dive underneath Biffle and claim the lead. Jeff Gordon rammed into the back of Biffle moments later to trigger a huge accident behind the leader.

NASCAR waited several moments before calling caution, presumably to see if the wreckage cleared and the race could end under green. Instead, Harvick passed under the yellow flag and won under caution.

Kasey Kahne was second and followed by Jamie McMurray, Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin.
