2012 Budweiser Shootout At Daytona Starting Lineup

Martin Truex Jr. was the lucky lottery winner at Friday night's Budweiser Shootout draw party, the event where drivers randomly select their starting spots for the season-opening exhibition race at Daytona International Speedway.

Truex was among the final 10 drivers to pick a spot, but came up big when he guessed which bottle held the No. 1 position flag. The Michael Waltrip Racing driver was visibly elated and celebrated his pole with a fist pump.

Kyle Busch will start second, followed by Brad Keselowski – a Miller-sponsored driver who had someone else pick up his bottle of Bud.

Jamie McMurray and David Ragan round out the top five.
