As noted at US news sites that day, James Buescher won his first career NASCAR Nationwide series at the Daytona International Speedway, after the 10 cars leading in front of him went crashing each other that led his victory.

According to report, Buescher was in the 11th place as he rounded his No. 30 Chevrolet on the final turn, which he later made his way to win despite a massive pack of ten spinning race cars.

“It’s hard to put into words. They all piled up in front of me and we made it through. It’s hard to describe the feeling when you make it through the wreck and you’re the only guy.” Buescher was quoted on reports after winning the Drive4COPD 300.

“You don’t see anybody in front of you coming to the checkered flag. It’s pretty incredible. Definitely will never forget it.” Buescher added.

Meanwhile, Brad Keselowski eventually landed as second and Elliott Sadler, who is now leading the NASCAR Nationwide Series standings, finished third; as both were notable safe to continue the competition, which will be heading to Phoenix.
