Regan Smith wins Nationwide race at Daytona

Published On: Feb 22 2014 04:07:39 PM EST


In what was one of the closest finishes in NASCAR history, Regan Smith held off Brad Keselowski by .013 to win the Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway.

It was the second-closest finish at Daytona International Speedway for a Nationwide race and the seventh-closest in series history.

Just one year ago, Smith led on the last lap when he tried to block Keselowski to secure the victory. But it led to a 12-car accident that sent Kyle Larson's car into the fence, injuring 30 fans.

This was Smith's first win at Daytona International Speedway. It was his fourth career victory in the Nationwide Series.
