NASCAR UPDATE
(Compiled via NASCAR.com reports)
 
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.—Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the first Gatorade Duel 150 qualifying race Thursday afternoon at Daytona International Speedway.
 
Earnhardt's win continued his Daytona "happy time" since NASCAR's most popular driver started his season with new car owner Rick Hendrick Saturday night by winning the Bud Shootout.
 
"That was fun" he said. "These new cars are a handful, but we'll sort that all out. It reminded me of the old days with the cars slipping and sliding around."
 
Seven cars, including Earnhardt and Daytona 500 pole winner Jimmie Johnson, started the first race from the rear after engine problems in practice forced a change. Casey Mears, AJ Allmendinger, Clint Bowyer, J.J. Yeley and Scott Riggs also started from the rear. But by Lap 17 Earnhardt had completed his charge from the back of the field to the front.

“I’m real proud of my team. That was a fun race for the fans – hope they enjoyed it,” Earnhardt Jr. said in Victory Lane at the conclusion of the race.
