Matt Kenseth driving the PWR Performance Products cooled Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing has won the first qualifying 150 mile Duel race at Daytona International Raceway.
Kenseth, who led a race high 31 laps in the first qualifying race, was the victor in a three wide finish at the chequered flag, edging out Kevin Harvick by .022 seconds with Kasey Kahne a close third. It was later announced that Harvick’s Chevrolet failed post race inspection nullifying his finish in the race.

In the second qualifying 150 mile Duel race it was Kenseth’s team mate, PWR cooled Denny Hamlin who took the chequered flag. Hamlin has dominated Budweiser Speedweek, winning the Sprint Unlimited last Saturday night and leading 23 of the 60 laps on the way to his win in the second Budweiser Duel. Hamlin was followed across the finish line by three time Daytona 500 champion Jeff Gordon and Kurt Busch.
