David Ragan Wins At Daytona

For the third time this season a Sprint Cup driver posted his first career win.  Saturday night at Daytona, David Ragan was in the lead on the 10th lap of overtime and the second try at a green white checkered finish when a big wreck behind him gave him the victory.

And ironic his first win would come at the same track where a mistake cost him a chance to win the Daytona 500.  Last February, Ragan was penalized a lap when he changed lanes just before the start/finish line on a restart.  He learned from his mistake.

Teammate Matt Kenseth provided the push for Ragan most of the race and on the final restart and he came in second giving Roush racing and ford the top two spots.

Joey Logano came in a season-best third with Kasey Kahne and Kyle Busch all in Toyotas completing the top five.

A disastrous race for Carl Edwards.  He entered the event with a 25 point lead in the cup standings but a crash into the fourth turn wall on lap 23 did so much damage to his car by the time he got back out he was out of contention.  Edwards finished 37th and allowed Kevin Harvick to move into the top spot with a five-point lead, dropping Edwards into second place.

Kentucky Speedway is up next.
