Roush Fenway Racing teammates finish 1-2 in Alert Today Florida 300 Play: NASCAR Fantasy Live RELATED: Full race results " Series standings DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- With a spectacular last-lap move to the inside, not to mention a timely shove from Roush Fenway Racing teammate Chris Buescher, Ryan Reed stormed to his first NASCAR XFINITY Series victory in Saturday's Alert Today Florida 300 at Daytona International Speedway. "Oh, my God, we won Daytona!" exulted Reed , who has overcome a diagnosis of Type I diabetes to drive full-time in the XFINITY Series. RELATED: Buescher- Reed push highlights Roush resurgence Buescher finished second, .089 seconds behind, with Ty Dillon, Austin Dillon and Brad Keselowski claiming positions three through five. Keselowski was leading at the white flag, but a last-lap crash in Turn 1 left him alone in front of the field and a prime target for the Roush Fenway tandem. On Lap 112, during a 10-car wreck that started at the exit from the tri-oval, Kyle Busch crashed nose-first into the concrete wall inside Turn 1. Busch climbed from his car but was unable to stay on his feet. Emergency medical technicians put an air cast on Busch's right leg before lifting him on a stretcher into a waiting ambulance. The driver of the No. 54 Toyota was transported directly to Halifax Medical Center for further evaluation. Busch was awake and alert and undergoing treatment for his leg injury. Joe Gibbs Racing said Busch will not drive in Sunday's Daytona 500, and the organization is making contingency plans. Sunday's race will be the first Sprint Cup event since the penultimate event of the 2001 season without one of the Busch brothers (Kurt or Kyle) in the field. In a race where attrition was the watchword, Reed was one of nine drivers to finish on the lead lap. "For every kid that gets diagnosed with diabetes, or anything that says you can’t do something, just go out there and overcome it and do it," Reed said. "This is unreal. It hasn't even sunk in yet. ... "When the wreck broke out of the least lap, Keselowski was out there on an island, and we got a huge run and it set up perfectly. ... It's amazing." After failing to qualify for the Daytona race last year, Buescher was elated with his second-place run, especially since he finished runner-up to a teammate. "We're just happy to be running this race this year," Buescher said. "After last year going the way it did, we're proud that we were in it. Our Ford Mustang was fast all weekend. Just trying to stay out of trouble, and there was a lot of it. "We barely got out of it. I think we ended up, me and Ty, at one point getting through one of those last ones. It was a melee, a lot of torn up equipment. Just happy we could get out of it. Happy for Ryan to get his first win, knowing the feeling after last year (when he got his first win at Mid-Ohio) of finally getting one off your back." Chase Elliott's XFINITY Series title defense got off to a rocky start. Elliott was an innocent victim of a 13-car wreck on Lap 93 but continued after repairs. The coup de grace for the driver of the No. 9 JR Motorsports Chevy came on Lap 112, when he was sidelined in the same wreck that injured Busch. The DNF (did not finish) was Elliott’s first in 34 XFINITY Series starts. Darrell Wallace Jr. and Elliott Sadler finished 12th and 19th, respectively, in their first events for Roush Fenway Racing.

Teenager edges Roush pair of Wallace, Reed on leaderboard RELATED: Practice results Erik Jones topped the speed charts Friday in the lone NASCAR XFINITY Series practice at Talladega Superspeedway . Jones, driving the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 Toyota, rose to the top of the leaderboard with a lap of 188.861 mph around the 2.66-mile track. The 18-year-old driver, who will make his Sprint Cup Series debut next weekend at Kansas Speedway , will be making just his 12th XFINITY start in Saturday's Winn-Dixie 300 (3 p.m. ET, FOX). Teammates Darrell Wallace Jr . and Ryan Reed tied for the second spot at 188.727 mph in a pair of Roush Fenway Racing Fords. Regan Smith , a former Talladega winner in the JR Motorsports No. 7 Chevrolet, was fourth-best at 188.086 mph with rookie Daniel Suarez fifth at 187.621 mph in another Gibbs Toyota. Series points leader Ty Dillon clocked the 26th-fastest lap in the Richard Childress Racing No. 3 Chevrolet. Defending race winner Elliott Sadler was 13th-best at 186.180 mph in the Roush Fenway No. 1 Ford. Chase Elliott , the defending series champion, was 15th-fastest at 185.924 mph in the JR Motorsports No. 9 Chevrolet. Boris Said was 17th-fastest driving the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 54 Toyota in place of the injured Kyle Busch . Said, an occasional NASCAR competitor primarily at road-course events, will make his first start in the XFINITY Series since 2011. The fastest laps were established early in the 2-hour, 20-minute session, when drivers grouped together in aerodynamic packs. Most of the latter stages were spent in single-car mock qualifying runs. Several teams were docked 15 minutes of practice time because of inspection infractions the week before at Richmond International Raceway . Among them were the teams for Said, Sadler, Joey Logano , Brendan Gaughan and Brian Scott . Coors Light Pole Qualifying is scheduled Saturday at 11 a.m. ET (FOX Sports 1). It will mark the first session with revised rules disbanding group qualifying at tracks where restrictor plates limit engine output. FULL SERIES COVERAGE • Latest news • Standings • Schedule
