Morning After: The Bud Shootout

Tony Stewart wins his third Bud Shootout after moving Kyle Busch aside in the closing laps.  Stewart held off David Gilliland, who was aiming to win the Shootout in his first try and Kurt Busch, who may indeed be a threat this season to win some races and clinch a Chase position.  On the last lap, Dale Earnhardt Jr. triggered a multi-car crash that took out the 9, 11, and 19 and damaged the 16 as well. 

For randomly picking Kyle Busch, I think he did pretty well.  He led the most laps in the event but probably should have taken 4 tires during the caution.  I find it hilarious that Stacy Compton and Tim Cowlishaw both picked Jeff Gordon to win and Jeffy wasn't even a factor in the event.  Need to sharpen those prognostication skills guys. 

At 2 PM today we have qualifying for the Daytona 500.  Remember kids, this only locks in the front row of the field because the Gatorade Duels (damn I miss Twin 125's) set the rest of the field on Thursday.
