2012 Daytona 500 Starting Grid

-> The Cat In The Hat

A few notes: At the end of qualifying, Clint Bowyer’s 5 Hour Energy car which is part of Michael Waltrip Racing got caught in post-race inspection for failing to pass the height sticks. He will start in last place in next Sunday’s race. Shades of the MWR cheating scandal from 2007(Not really…..)

What wasn’t determined until today? Which bubble drivers would get into the race and which would leave Daytona heartbroken.

In the first Duel, Michael McDowell and Robby Gordon took the two available transfer spots; Dave Blaney and Joe Nemechek did the same in Duel No. 2.

Those four drivers will join Trevor Bayne, Tony Raines and David Stremme – whose time trial speeds earned them a berth in the 500 – and Terry Labonte, who makes the race by virtue of a past champion’s provisional.

Going home are big names such as Michael Waltrip, Bill Elliott and Kenny Wallace, along with Mike Wallace, Robert Richardson Jr. and JJ Yeley.

  1. Carl Edwards
