The Duel qualifying races used to set the field for the Daytona 500 ran under the lights for the first time Thursday night. For 299.5 miles there was great racing but very little drama; that happened in the last few feet.

Matt Kenseth led 31 of 60 caution free laps to win the first Duel in a thrilling three wide finish.  The second Duel, won by Denny Hamlin was just as sedate, that was until the final lap.
