In the Duels, two races are held that takes all those that competed in qualifying and splits them in half. The first race will determine the race order in the left side of the starting grid while the second race determines the starting order on the right side. No matter the outcome of the races, Mark Martin will start first and Dale Earnhardt Jr. will start second. Race one will determine who starts third, fifth, etc. while the second race determines who starts fourth, sixth, etc.
