Duel 2 – Report
Green flag, Elliott is slow to the gas. Alex Bowman moves to the top and slots in front of him. Hendrick Motorsports leads the top lane.
Lap 5, single file at the front. Joey Gase and Brendan Gaughan are door to door for a transfer position. They’re trading side draft after side draft for 17th.
Lap 12, all the Chevy’s come to the pit lane. Bowman leads them to the entry and exit lines. Lap 13, all the Ford’s and Denny Hamlin head for the pit lane.
Lap 21, Clint Bowyer has cycled to the lead. His pit group had a quicker in-lap, that put them to the lead. Kyle Larson has lost the draft. Alex Bowman has as well.
Chase Elliott is trying to entertain the fans on his own. He’s side drafting the car ahead on corner entry, pulling them back then diving to the bottom and sliding in front of them mid corner. He’s picked off 3-4 like that. But, it just bit him. He wasn’t clear of Kurt Busch, now the whole field has gone by him on the outside.
Lap 52, Elliott has picked his way back to the same spot. He’s clear of Kurt Busch. McMurray, Elliott and Busch lock bumpers. Elliott wiggles and Busch fills the hole on the outside, Elliott to the tall.
Lap 54, same thing. This time, Elliott stays at the top, Kurt Busch goes to the tail on the inside.
The top 5 have remained single file this entire time. Clint Bowyer continues to lead Denny Hamlin.
2 to go, single file except for Chase Elliott.
1 to go, Joey logano and Ryan Blaney cut to the bottom. They have a run. They pull even with Bowyer! Logano is clear, he slides up in front.
Joey Logano takes the win in the Daytona Duels!
