    Clint Bowyer was a flat out beast on the track. Oakley’s head-to-toe NASCAR star smashed his way to a second place finish at the Gatorade Duel competition, Duel 2, in Daytona Thursday. On the week of the heralded Daytona 500 race, which is set to go down on Sunday, Clint utilized the Shootout as a test run and a crash course on how to stay in front at the finish at Daytona International Speedway. Dishing out an assist for eventual winner Jeff Burton, he crossed the finish line .005 seconds behind Burton and will start sixth in Sunday’s race. Fellow Oakley driver and racing legend Michael Waltrip, whose teams include the newly formed Waltrip-Pastrana Team (with Travis Pastrana – as he transitions into four-wheel racing), sped his way into a third place finish and a solid spot in the 500…his 25th run at it!
