With the first Gatorade Duel in the books here's a look at all the action.
Carl Edwards led the field to the green flag and it looked like all 25 drivers were settling in for the race.
Then on lap nine the "big one" for this race happened. Collected were Juan Pablo Montoya, Paul Menard, David Gilliland, and Brad Keselowski. All of these damaged race cars were the result of Michael McDowell getting loose. Of the four involved, only Keselowski was able to continue.
During the caution for that wreck several drivers came to pit road for stops including Dale Earnhardt, Jr. who was leading at the time. He was penalized for his crew coming over the wall too soon and had to re-start the the tail end of the longest line.
After that incident, the drivers settled down for the remainder of the race with Denny Hamlin leading most of the way until he needed to pit for gas.
As Michael Waltrip was trying to make the Daytona 500, he made a uncharacteristic mistake coming off pit road, spinning out and crashing by himself. His car was destroye. He would not be able to finish the race, therefore he will not make the Daytona 500.
The last lap saw Tony Stewart leading with Earnhardt closing in fast. But as there was a horiffic crash involving Danica Patrick, Aric Almirola and Jamie McMurray. All involved walked away from the wreck. Patrick will be going to a back up car for the Daytona 500. NASCAR waved the caution flag ending the race.
Stewart was named the winner and McDowell and Robby Gordon will make the Daytona 500.
We also know that both Stewart and Earnhardt have wicked fast cars.
It's now or never for drivers like Kenny Wallce, Dave Blaney, and Joe Nemecheck.
Who makes it and who goes home? Stay tuned.
