      The 2010 NASCAR Pole Qualifying for the Gatorade Duels occurred on Saturday, February 6th, and the wind was supposed to be a big factor. With wind gusts up to 25mph, the feeling was that the winds would really impede the speed of the cars on Turn 4 and maybe even on the third turn a bit.

      I was hoping for some of that excitement. I like to see the drivers have to really manhandle their cars. It shows what they have. Though the wind was blowing, it didn’t really feel like it made


      that much of an impression.

      One thing that was interesting about this qualifying round was that the qualifiers were broken up into three groups. First up were the 35 cars who are in the Daytona 500 by points. Then there were the cars who needed to race their way in. Finally, for the first time, there were a group of 8 cars who were allowed an unprecedented opportunity to participate in an early morning practice.

        What’s curious is that in the past that was termed ‘tough luck’, but this year, NASCAR allowed those cars to get some track time on Saturday. You have to wonder what other surprises NASCAR has up their sleeves. I like that they made this decision, and I also like how they then grouped those cars together for qualifying. It’s fair, and that’s what everyone wants.

        My biggest disappointment was Carl Edwards’ performance in his Ford Fusion. He didn’t show much speed at all and ended up 26th.

        My favorite, Jeff Gordon, was in the top 10, but I (and he) would have preferred to be on the front row. That honor belonged to two of his Hendrick teammates — Mark Martin and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

        It was a long session with 54 cars out there on the track, but the good news is that it was pretty much incident free. It killed a few hours of TV viewing. I wish the interviews would be more interesting and not so standard. They so rarely get to the specifics of a run.
