NASCAR: Kurt Busch and Jeff Burton win at Daytona Duels

Rolling with cars equipped with air reduced flanges, Kurt Busch and Jeff Burton won both duels of 150 miles held Thursday at Daytona International Speedway.

In fact, no major accident has marred the two races as feared. Dozens of trains were formed two cars and the drivers managed to maintain water temperatures at acceptable levels.

Kurt Busch, Dodge on Penske, repeated the feat last Saturday by winning the first duel of 80 laps, managing to keep him behind the Reagan Smith Chevrolet and Kevin Harvick.

In the second Duel, Jeff Burton, Chevrolet on, doubled his teammate, Clint Bowyer, the flag fell. Michael Waltrip, twice winner of the Daytona 500, finished third in a Toyota.

When Duel 1, after a final caution, Busch and Regan Smith, welded to each other, have saved the rest of the pack. Smith has tried to pass Busch just before the finish, but without success.

In the second Duel, Burton and Bowyer appeared to be driving many of the most powerful cars. They also saved the rest of the pack and finish was so tight that Burton had to ask Bowyer via radio that the two had crossed the line first.

The 2011 Daytona 500 marks the tenth anniversary of the sad death of Dale Earnhardt in an accident limit.

His son, Dale Jr., signed the pole position but will start last after damaging his car in a racing accident on Wednesday. It will start from last place in the wheel of his car reservation. Technically, it is the holder of the positron head.
