Matt Kenseth Crosses The Line First In Duel #2

Posted by imelda sovzky on Thursday, February 23, 2012

Matt Kenseth won duel #2 after beating teammate Greg Biffle. Biffle was in the lead when the white flag flew but Kenseth had a run so Biffle tried to block which sent Biffle falling back. The race was somewhat boring in my opinion. But the good thing is that no cars were seriously wrecked. There was a bit of fender bumpin' between Johnson and Smith on the final lap but other than that it was pretty good. Final Laps (Video): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyED2MdY1XU

It wasn't good for Kenny Wallace and J.J. Yeley. Yeley had engine problems early on in the race, and around lap 30 Kenny Wallace reported the fuel pressure was low. He spent 3 laps on pit road and wasn't able to recover. Both Kenny and J.J. were looking to race their way into the 500.

Most of the cars all pit on lap 40 to get a quick splash of fuel to continue the race. Many drivers were starting to complain about their engine's but luckily NASCAR allows them to put a new engine in the car after the Duels.

Joe Nemechek and Dave Blaney were the two drivers who raced their way into the 500. Blaney was stripped of his points when his owner sold them to Stewart Haas Racing for Danica Patrick to use to lock her into the Daytona 500.
