Row 4 start for Ambrose in Daytona 500

Marcos Ambrose at Daytona

Marcos Ambrose will start the Daytona 500 in seventh after the completion of the second Gatorade Duel qualifying race.

The Tasmanian finished third in the first Gatorade Duel. Click here for that report.

In a relative tame affair, Matt Kenseth won the second Gatorade Duel which featured green flag running all the way.

Ambrose will be alongside 5-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson, with Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle maintaining their front row starts from the qualifying runs earlier this week.

For the first time since 1972 the name Waltrip will not be in the race after Michael joined Kenny and Mike Wallace, plus Robert Richardson Jr, JJ Yaley and Bill Elliott as the drivers in failing to qualify for the Daytona 500 following the Gatorade Duels.

The Daytona 500 will be shown LIVE in Australia from 4:00am (Eastern Daylight Savings Time) on Monday on SPEED, and replayed on ONE HD.
