Matt Kenseth won the first 150-mile Budweiser Duels race in a three-wide finish featuring Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne on Thursday.

The second race looked about the same for 59½ laps at Daytona International Speedway until Jimmie Johnson ran out of gas to trigger a multicar pileup including Clint Bowyer, whose car went flying on the last lap. Denny Hamlin won the race as he was ahead of all the carnage.

"We've all done a pretty good job at tearing a few things up," Harvick said.

Harvick's car, though, failed post-race inspection because it exceeded the maximum split on the track bar, but he'll still start the Daytona 500.

The duels set the starting grid for Sunday's race beyond the first two spots, already secured by pole-sitter Austin Dillon and Martin Truex Jr.
