The last week in Daytona has taught the drivers just how unstable the Gen 6 cars are as they have been working to learn the brand new machine. Speedweeks has had its share of wrecks and interesting moments, and the Budweiser Duels will probably not disappoint with much of the same.
The Budweiser Duels are two 60 lap, 150 mile races that determine the starting order for the Daytona 500 which will air on FOX on Sunday. The field is divided in half for each duel, Daytona 500 qualifying speeds set the drivers position for the duels; even numbers in one race, odd numbers in the other. At the end of the duels, the field will be set for the Great American Race.
The first race is set for a green flag just after 2:00 p.m EST. The second duel will follow shortly after. The duels will be televised live on SPEED. If you can’t catch the race on TV- you can follow along on NASCAR.com.
Danica Patrick is on the pole for the Daytona 500, the duel will be survival for her and her No.10 GoDaddy Chevrolet SS. Jeff Gordon is also locked in and will start second.
