Per tradition, the Gatorade Duel 150 NASCAR races began speed week at Daytona Thursday. Jeff Gordon won the opener, his first win since 2007 and unheralded Scott Riggs qualified for Sunday's race. In the nightcap Kyle Busch edged Mark Martin. Busch won eight times last year, but faltered down the stretch and was looking to get off to a good start in 2009. Sunday's Daytona 500 begins at 3:30pm.
