After a tense final 100 miles, Kurt Busch has emerged victorious in the 2017 Daytona 500!

Busch won the race for NASCAR’s new title sponsort Monster Energy after Kyle Larson ran out of fuel whilst leading in the final laps, having taken the lead from fourth in the final laps with some fantastic moves. Ryan Blaney took second place with AJ Allmendinger in third.

There were crashes galore as seems to be normal with NASCAR, as stars such as Dale Earnhardt Jr, Danica Patrick and Jimmie Johnson. Eventually, only 25 of the starting 40 cars finished.

This result puts Kurt Busch in the Championship lead.
