VSiN staff report

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Las Vegas’ Kurt Busch won his first Daytona 500 on Sunday, capitalizing on a last-lap pass to take the checkered flag in a crash-marred race to open the NASCAR season.

Busch, a Durango High School graduate, cashed at 25-1 odds. He finally broke through after three runner-up finishes at Daytona.

Brendan Gaughan of Las Vegas finished 11th after starting the race in 39th position.

Gaughan, the 41-year-old son of South Point Hotel Casino owner Michael Gaughan, made his Daytona 500 debut in 2004 and finished 19th. His second start was a bigger success.

Kurt Busch led only one lap. His brother, Kyle Busch, led 18 laps but finished 38th in the 40-car field.
