Daytona Duels to move to Thursday night
The Daytona Duels, the 150-mile qualifying races that determine the starting lineup for the Daytona 500, will move under the lights in 2014, Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III announced Thursday.

Scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 20, the Duels will start under the lights and will be televised by FOX Sports Media Group.

“To earn a coveted starting spot in the Daytona 500, the stars of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will have to perform under the lights and in front of a prime-time audience in the Budweiser Duel,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said in a press release. “Moving the Budweiser Duel under the lights will add another dimension to Budweiser Speedweeks.”

The Duels join The Sprint Unlimited and the NextEra Energy Resources 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race as the three nighttime races held during Speedweeks.

This year’s 55th annual Daytona 500 is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday on MRN Radio and FOX. Tickets for all of the events during Budweiser Speedweeks are available online by clicking here or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.
