The The Can-Am Due , formely Gatorade Duel, is NASCAR Sprint Cup Series preliminary event to the Daytona 500 held annually in February at Daytona International Speedway. The Can-Am Due at Daytona features two 150-mile qualifying races that determine the starting lineup, as well as the final chance for many drivers to qualify for the Daytona 500.
Once qualifying is over, the field is set by merging the highest ranked 35 teams in the owner standings with the fastest seven cars not in those 35 positions, in the order of their qualifying speeds.
The 43rd position is reserved
for a former champion, provided he is not already qualified and satisfies the rulebook's criteria. If unused by a
former champion, it goes to the next fastest car in qualifying. The lone exception is the Daytona 500, which uses
qualifying and two 150-mile races to determine the field.
The Budweiser Duel at Daytona certainly lived up to their new name. Long known as the Gatorade 125's, the races this season were lengthened by 10 laps and renamed the Budweiser Duel at Daytona.
