And just which drivers were eligible for theGatorade Duel 1 live? For nearly 30 years, the criteria were pretty simple: the previous season’s pole winners and past shootout victors. Knowing the fastest drivers in the sport would be competing against one another only kicked up fans’ anticipation. The rules for eligibility were also easy enough to understand and look forward to on a yearly basis.


When it comes to NASCAR, it all starts with Daytona, literally and figuratively. It is here where many of the sport's most enduring memories have been created. Drivers who have won both the season-opening Daytona 500 and an overall series championship have actually said that winning the Daytona 500 was more important.




The 500 is the one that sets the tone for the entire season to follow. Who can forget Darrell Waltrip's "Ickey Shuffle" in Victory Lane after his victory in 1989, or Dale Earnhardt's row of congratulatory handshakes on his way to that elusive place that had eluded him for so long? Or what about the 1979 race in which Cale Yarborough and the Allison brothers duked it out on national television?

Or what about the 1979 race in which Cale Yarborough and the Allison brothers duked it out on national television?

The 400, meanwhile, has had some magic of its own. This is the race in which Richard Petty won his 200th race as President Ronald Reagan watched in 1984. It's also where Dale Earnhardt Jr. won just five months after his father passed away in the 500 in 2001. This is truly the place where NASCAR began its ascent to the top of the American sporting landscape. It has everything racing fans could want.
