Gatorade Duels

17 02 2011

The Gatorade Duels ran today to set the feild  for the Daytona 500 with great weather!

Race 1 looked pertty much as the Bud Shootout with the 2×2 car drafts. Harvick and Kenseth looked really strong working together through the whole race and even lead some laps. The yellow flag came out with a few laps to go making a Green,White ,Checker finish with Kurt Busch winning the race. Harvick and Kenseth finished 3rd and 4th! There was a few spins and wall bangers but no major incidents!

Race 2 looked more racey with a bigger pack and 3 wide racin’ the way Daytona should be! There was a few spins and wall bangers but no major incidents! Jeff Burton won with his teammate Clint Bowyer 2nd!

You can see the results of the Duels and the Lineup for the Daytona 500 on or
