Kevin Harvick held off Greg Biffle Thursday over a four lap sprint to win the first 150-mile Budweiser Dual being held at Daytona. The starting field for Sunday's season opening Daytona 500 is set by the results from the pair of 60-lap qualifiers. Pole sitter Danica Patrick finished 17th of 23 cars in the first race. Next year's races will be run in prime time and televised.
