DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- It's a Joe Gibbs Racing 1-2 finish in
the season-opening Nationwide Series race as Tony Stewart takes the
checkered flag at Daytona with Kyle Busch right behind him.
Dale Earnhart Junior finished third.
Between them, Stewart and Busch led 93 of the 120 laps.
The Gibbs drivers will need the same type of teamwork to fend
off the Hendrick Motorsports stars in tomorrow's Daytona 500.
Hendrick has four cars in the starting grid's top nine, including
pole-sitter Jimmie Johnson.
Today's race included a nine-car crash on lap 111 that took out
Cup stars Kasey Kahne (kayn) and Kevin Harvick.
