Ken Schrader led 15 of the 20 laps and collected $75,000 Sunday for winning the Busch Clash at Daytona International Speedway. Schrader, driving a Chevrolet Monte Carlo, outdrove the Ford Thunderbirds of Davey Allison and Terry Labonte in winning the 50-mile sprint race for last year's pole winners. Schrader picked the pole position in the blind draw for starting spots in the 13-car race and led the first three laps before Hendrick Motorsports teammate Darrell Waltrip took over.

There's nothing Ken Schrader can do to erase the image he has of seeing Dale Earnhardt dead in his car.

"What I saw in the car that day, that will stay with you," Schrader said in his first extensive interview about the wreck.
