Jarrett takes Daytona shootout win

Dale Jarrett took victory in the Bud Shootout at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday.

Jarrett takes Daytona shootout win

The Ford driver, who spent most of the 25-lap race at the back of the pack, claims the victory with a last lap outside move on Jeff Gordon, winning by just 0.261s.


However, behind Jarrett chaos ensued as Sterling Marlin clipped the Pontiac of Bobby Labonte coming out of Turn 4.


Labonte then caught the car of Jarrett's team mate, Ricky Rudd. The Ford driver flipped over and skidded along the track, before coming to a standstill on the grass-covered inlet just 20 yards short of the finish line.


After safety crews pulled him out of the wreckage, Rudd waved at the crowd to show he was uninjured.


However, Rudd's accident was not the only one of the race. During the pit stop on lap 10, a brake problem left Mark Martin unable to stop. He hit his crewman, Mike Ehret, who rolled across the bonnet of the Chevrolet before limping off.


"I kept waiting for Ricky and I to be able to make a move so we could get Ricky to the front and then it would be between the 88 and the 28," said Jarrett afterwards. "But we couldn't seem to get that going. Then Schrader and Gordon started laying back and I knew what they were up to, so I started laying back.


"Then they got to racing side-by-side and Bobby Labonte came up there and gave me a push I needed. That's what really got me to the front."
