Who's Ready For A Duel?

The Gatorade Duels are set to run this afternoon in Daytona.  Insiders will tell you that these are the most exciting races of Speedweeks because of what is at stake.  I think running them on a Thursday makes them special, like we're getting an excuse to lay out of school or work to watch racing.  I myself have been guilty of that.  These races, whatever they're called (I grew up with Twin 125s), are a big part of the mystique and prominence that comes with winning The Great American Race.

Here are the lineups for each duel:

Race 1
Race 2

The races will air live on SPEED starting at 2 PM.  A full replay will air at 10 PM.  If you're curious to see what ESPN's coverage will be like, ESPN2 will be airing Busch Series final practice at 5 PM.
