Who Won the Budweiser Duels?

Budweiser Duels

The Budweiser Duels (formerly the Gatorade Duel) is a preliminary NASCAR Sprint Cup event held prior to the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

It is two 150-mile races which determine the starting lineup for the Daytona 500 (although the top two positions are determined by time trials).

The race began as twin 100-mile races in 1959 and were counted with points through 1971.
