Two Chevy drivers win the Duel 150's at Daytona

Recommended Posts

The Gatorade Duel 150's the races that determine starting positions 3-43 for the Daytona 500 today were won by two Chevy drivers. Tony Stewart visited victory lane for the second time during speedweeks winning the first 150 mile heat race. Jeff Gordon won the second 150 miler on a last lap pass of Kurt Busch. However Gordon's car failed post race inspection when NASCAR officials said the car was about an inch too low, instead of starting Sunday's race from the 4th position he will line up 42nd. Michael Waltrip was allowed to run the qualifying race and he will be in the Daytona 500. Team Toyota Red Bull with drivers Brian Vickers and A.J. Allmindinger did not make the Daytona 500 after both drivers fell out of the Duel races. Former F1 Racer Juan Montoya broke a wheel hub while leading during the second race and wound up 30th place.

Also, Jeff Gordon's car failed post race inspection. It was almost an inch too low. I thought it was wierd how well he did after he ran poorly in the Bud Shootout before his car quit on him, and qualified mediocre at best for the Duels. NASCAR officials didn't beleive it was intentional, as they found a misaligned bold in a suspention component that caused it. Jeff Gordon will now start the Daytona 500 in 42nd, instead of 4th.

I'm pretty sure he qualified 7th or 8th... How is that mediocre? And from what I've read and heard, the problem with his car during the shootout was electrical.
