NASCAR: Starting lineup of the 2014 Daytona 500

The official starting lineup of the 2014 Daytona 500 has been set after Thursday night’s two qualifying races, the famous Budweiser Duels.

These two races serve to establish the starting lineup but the front row, which was locked last weekend with Austin Dillon on pole and Martin Truex Jr alongside him.

Matt Kenseth won Duel 1 after the Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet of Kevin Harvick was disqualified for a technical infraction found during the post-race inspection.

Duel 2 ran smoothly until the last lap when Jimmie Johnson ran out of fuel. The No. 48 Chevrolet suddenly slowed down and that created chaos behind. Clint Bowyer rolled once, but luckily no one was injured.
