2011 Gatorade Duel At Daytona: Race No. 2 Starting Lineup, Analysis

The second of two Gatorade Duels today offers a rematch of some of last year's best "Boys, have at it" rivalry moments.

Occasional rivals Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards are in the field, along with David Reutimann and Kyle Busch – who infamously had an incident at Kansas year – plus Texas fighters Jeff Gordon and Jeff Burton.

Michael Waltrip – who needs help to get into the Daytona 500 – will have teammates Reutimann and Martin Truex Jr. in the field, which will make him a major focus as he attempts to get his No. 15 car into NASCAR's biggest race.

Last year's Daytona 500 winner Jamie McMurray is also in the field – and is capable of winning – along with names like Clint Bowyer and Joey Logano.

Despite his blown engine during practice on Wednesday, Casey Mears also has a good chance to grab one of the two transfer spots if he can hold off Todd Bodine or Travis Kvapil.
