Budweiser Duel Race 2: Busch holds off Kahne  
Kyle Busch celebrates
Kyle Busch took advantage of other drivers' misfortunes during green flag pit stops to win the second Budweiser Duel Daytona 500 qualifying race Thursday at Daytona International Speedway.

Busch won a Duel five years ago.

"Stay out front and try to hold everybody off behind you," Busch said when asked how he won the race.

It was the second fastest qualifier ever staged at Daytona. Busch averaged 193.966 mph in the 60-lap run over Daytona International Speedway's 2.5-mile tri-oval.

Busch, who drives the No. 18 Toyota, was followed by Kasey Kahne, Austin Dillon, Clint Bowyer and Matt Kenseth. Busch's margin of victory was 0.093 seconds.

leader Jeff Gordon was penalized a drive-through penalty for speeding on pit road. Ryan Newman spun while trying to enter the pits, but no yellow flag was shown. Newman was able to continue despite tapping the outside wall.

Gordon led 38 of the first 39 laps before NASCAR decided they did not want him to win.
