Gatorade Duels

Tony Stewart, driver of the #20 The Home Depot Chevrolet, won the first Gatorade Duel race this afternoon at Daytona, and Jeff Gordon, driver of the #24 DuPont Chevrolet won the second race. However, after the second race was over Gordon's car was disqualified because the rear of the car was too low. There was no surprise when NASCAR's reprimand was for him to start 42nd in the Daytona 500 on Sunday. So much for NASCAR clamping down. Robin Pemberton, NASCAR's vice president for competition, claimed it was "something a mechanic made a mistake on" as he misaligned the bolts on the rear shocks that were installed prior to the race. Riiiiiight.

Those not making Sunday's Daytona 500 will include: #04 Eric McClure (Hefty Chevrolet), #4 Ward Burton (State Water Heaters Chevrolet), #15 Paul Menard (PEAK / Menards Chevrolet), #23 Mike Skinner (Bill Davis Racing Toyota), #27 Kirk Shelmerdine (Lilly Trucking of Virginia Chevrolet), #30 Stanton Barrett (Bad Boy Power Drink Chevrolet), #34 Kevin Lepage (Detoxify Brand / Makoto Sauces Dodge), #36 Jeremy Mayfield (360 OTC Toyota), #37 Bill Elliott (Huddle House Dodge), #39 Regan Smith (Ginn Resorts Chevrolet), #49 Mike Bliss (BAM Racing Dodge), #58 James Hylton (Retirement Living TV Chevrolet), #72 Brandon Whitt (Dutch Quality Stone Chevrolet), #71 Frank Kimmel (Fast Track Driving School Ford), #74 Derrike Cope (Royal Administration Dodge), #78 Kenny Wallace (Furniture Row Racing Chevrolet), #83 Brian Vickers (Red Bull Toyota), and #84 A.J.
