The field is now set for Sunday’s Daytona 500 after Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch emerged the winners of Thursday’s Budweiser Duels. Coming off the victory in the Sprint Unlimited, Harvick won his heat in the Duel 150′s and that will place him in the third starting position on Sunday while Busch will start fourth. Danica Patrick and Jeff Gordon already clinched the front row last Sunday. Patrick came in 17th in the day’s first Duel and Gordon finished 12th in his heat.

Rookie Austin Dillon earned a spot in Sunday’s lineup coming in third in the Duel #2. It was flat out racing in the second Duel with no cautions. Different story in the opener with Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin coming together and wrecking both cars.

Long-time veteran Terry Labonte earned a spot in Sunday’s field. Mike Bliss and Brian Keselowski failed to qualify.

NASCAR revealed next year’s Budweiser Duel qualifying races will move to prime time under the lights.

Green flag expected to fly about 1:20 on Sunday for the 500.
