Todd Bodine captures Bud 200

Todd Bodine won his first NASCAR Grand National race Saturday as Davey Allison's car fell off the pace just before the last lap under caution in the Budweiser 200. Two leading cars collapsed in the final three laps on the 1-mile oval.

"We should have been third but the circumstances worked out," said Bodine, 27, younger brother of Winston Cup drivers Geoff and Brett.

Bodine, who drove a Buick, won $19,225.
