The #60 of Brian Rainville scored his first FTSR win in the biggest race of the season, the Daytona 200. Rainville started 19th and led 18 laps en route to victory.
Dustin Schwingle led all but one lap en route to his win in Duel #1, while Justin Wilson mirrored his performance in Duel #2, leading 24 of the 25 laps. While the results were similar, the racing was not. Duel race #1 was filled with cautions and wrecks, leaving several cars nothing by heaps of mangled sheet metal. Duel #2 was quite the opposite, running caution-free the entire distance. Regardless of the racing, one thing was clear; its hard to pass and starting position is going to be key next Thursday.
