DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Two races. Two surprise winners. James Buescher became the second first-time winner in as many days at Daytona International Speedway when he dodged several cars while driving through a last-lap wreck to win Saturday's Drive4COPD 300 Nationwide series season opener. Friday night, John King, making his first start at Daytona, won the Truck series season opener - his first win in NASCAR's three top series. Buescher, with the help of good timing and some smart moves in the final quarter-lap, added his first national series win Saturday.

You're 22, a rising NASCAR star, a Daytona 500 winner, recently married . . . the last news you expect to receive is that you have multiple sclerosis. Trevor Bayne revealed yesterday he has been diagnosed with MS, which attacks the central nervous system. Bayne said he has no symptoms now and is not taking medication. The Knoxville, Tenn., native does not expect the diagnosis to interfere with his driving the No. 6 Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing in the Nationwide Series.

A VOLUNTEER track worker at the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal died yesterday after being run over by a crane removing a car from the course after the checkered flag. The man, who wasn't immediately identified, died after being taken by helicopter to a hospital. "The worker was helping to recover a car, which had stopped during the race," F1 spokesman Matteo Bonciani said. "The recovery vehicle had lifted the car to return it to the pits and while doing this the worker dropped his radio and attempted to pick it up. As he did this, he stumbled and was hit and run over.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - In about 24 hours, Danica Patrick went from her biggest crash to her biggest moment in a stock car. The former IndyCar star won the pole Friday for the season-opening Nationwide Series race at Daytona, becoming the first woman to secure the top qualifying spot in NASCAR's second-tier series since Shawna Robinson at Atlanta on March 12, 1994. It came a day after she wrecked on the final lap of a qualifying race for the Daytona 500. "It's a good turn of events," she said.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - It's the elusive Holy Grail of stock-car racing, the last piece of business that will validate the greatness of a three-time NASCAR Cup champion: A Daytona 500 victory. To be clear, Tony Stewart doesn't need Daytona for a ticket into NASCAR's Hall of Fame. But it's one of those bucket-list deals. Like the late Dale Earnhardt, Stewart has mostly spun in circles here trying to win the Great American Race - he is winless in 13 starts. Overall, his record is fairly impressive: six top 10s, a second-place finish in 2004 ,and a third-place run in 2008.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - First came the rain. Then came the fire. Everything that could go wrong with this Daytona 500 did go wrong, and the race will be remembered for everything but the eventual winner. Journeyman driver Dave Blaney was leading when a problem with Juan Pablo Montoya's car sent him spinning into a safety truck. The truck, which holds 200 gallons of jet kerosene, burst into flames. Montoya's car slid into the grass, and he gingerly climbed from it as fire trucks rushed to the scene.

TALLADEGA, Ala. - Clint Bowyer pushed teammate Jeff Burton around and around Talladega Superspeedway yesterday. With the checkered flag in sight, he bailed. Bowyer pulled around Burton as they closed in on the finish line, grabbing his first win of the season while giving Richard Childress Racing its 100th victory in the Sprint Cup Series. "I knew he was going to make a move," Burton said. "He was supposed to make a move. He ain't expected to push me to the win. " It was redemption for Bowyer, too. He lost the spring race here when Dale Earnhardt Jr. pushed Jimmie Johnson past the Bowyer-Burton tandem and Bowyer settled for second.

WHEN A YOUNG racer pops out of nowhere to win the Daytona 500, his or her career should soar. In Trevor Bayne's case, however, his Sprint Cup racing career stalled after he became, at age 20, the youngest driver 3 years ago to win the Daytona 500. The fault wasn't Bayne's: Blame it on the economy. The Wood Brothers only could afford to field a Cup team for a partial schedule. Bayne, now 23, had to display remarkable patience for someone his age. Young racers are usually in a hurry, on the racetrack, at the fitness center or shopping at the mall.

Trevor Bayne rallied to win the rain-plagued NASCAR Nationwide-DuPont Pioneer 250 race in Newton, Iowa, on Sunday, becoming just the third series regular to win this season. Bayne caught pole-sitter Austin Dillon with 11 laps to go and hung on for his second career win and first of 2013. Dillon was second, followed by Elliott Sadler , Sam Hornish Jr ., and Kyle Larson in the first Nationwide race of the year without a Sprint Cup driver. The race, scheduled for Saturday night, was washed out by rain.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Just call it the James Taylor 500. "I've seen fire and I've seen rain. " It was already bad enough for sad, soggy race fans that the Daytona 500 was postponed by rain Sunday for the first time in its 54-year history. But who would have ever imagined that this race - finally and mercifully won by Matt Kenseth at 12:55 a.m. Tuesday - would be delayed again late Monday because of a jet-fuel fire? It's only appropriate that the No. 1 song in America right now is Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - NASCAR has raced on the beach at Daytona, under the lights and even around a pesky pothole. But never on a Monday - until now. The Daytona 500 was postponed yesterday for the first time in its 54-year history after heavy rain saturated Daytona International Speedway. NASCAR officials spent more than 4 hours waiting for a window to dry the famed track, but it never came. When the latest storm cell passed over the speedway around 5 p.m., they had little choice but to call it a day. The 500-mile race was rescheduled for noon today.
