Matt Kenseth pulled away from traffic on the final restart of Friday night's Nationwide Series race, cruising to a comfortable win at Daytona International Speedway.  The race was heard on your home for NASCAR, KJ Country 102.3.

The race was on pace to be one of the fastest in Daytona history until a late accident brought out a red flag stoppage that lasted nearly 10 minutes.

There were only two laps remaining when the race resumed and Kenseth paired up with defending Truck Series champion James Buescher on the restart.  The two easily broke away from the pack, leaving everyone else racing for third place.

Kenseth and Buescher weren't challenged to the finish, with Kenseth taking the win and Buescher finishing second.

It was a turn of events after the tandem of Sam Hornish, Jr. and Joey Logano had dominated to lead 64 of the 101 laps.
