Bluegreen Vacations Duel

Qualifying auto races to the Daytona 500

The Bluegreen Vacations Duel, formerly known as the Twin 125s, is a NASCAR Cup Series preliminary event to the Daytona 500 held annually in February at Daytona International Speedway. It consists of two 150-mile (240 km) races, which both serve as a qualifying race for the Daytona 500. The finishing order in the two 150-mile (240 km) races, held on the Thursday before the Daytona 500, determine the starting lineup for the Daytona 500 held on race day.

Qualifying for the Daytona 500 is unique in NASCAR. Only the two front row starters (the pole and "outside pole") are determined by the standard knockout qualifying system. For all other drivers it only determines their starting position in their Duel, with odd placed cars being entered into the first Duel and even placed cars going in the second. After the Top 2 positions are locked in, the next 30 places of starting grid of the Daytona 500 is set by the finishing order of these two races with the top 15 (excluding pole winner and outside pole) making up the next 15 places on the inside and outside lanes respectively. After the Duels are completed the four fastest non-qualifiers by time and finally the six or seven (if no past champion's exemption is needed) highest-earning teams in points not in the race yet advance (also set by time), and the starting grid for the Daytona 500 would then be set. The order is still subject to change if engine regulations are violated.

The event began as twin 100-mile (40-lap) races. From 1959 to 1971, the races were counted with points towards the Grand National championship. Purses awarded were counted separately from those awarded in the Daytona 500. For 1968, the races were scheduled for 125 miles (201 km) each, but were cancelled due to rain, and the starting lineup for the 1968 Daytona 500 fell back on the timed laps. In 1969, the races were extended again to 125 miles (50 laps).[citation needed] Lengthening the races added the need for a pit stop, increasing the complexity and excitement of the races.

For 1972, NASCAR's modern era commenced, and the races were dropped from the Grand National schedule as points-paying championship events. As part of Winston's changes to the series, races were required to be at least 250 miles (400 km) to be included as official points events. The races continued, however, as a non-points event. CBS began covering the event in the early 1980s, airing them tape-delayed and edited the day before the Daytona 500.

With the introduction of restrictor plates in 1988, the resulting reduction in speed and fuel consumption again allowed drivers to possibly complete the race without a pit stop. Nine times from 1988 to 2004, one of the races went without a caution, and without a pit stop by the winner. In 2003, rules had been put in place requiring smaller fuel tanks on restrictor plate tracks (from 22 US gal (18 imp gal; 83 l) down to 13 US gal (11 imp gal; 49 l)), which effectively forced a pit stop once again.

Starting in 2001, the races were shown live on television, as the Daytona 500 would rotate between FOX/FX and NBC/TNT from 2001 to 2006.

The final Gatorade Duel logo

In 2005, the races were lengthened to 150 miles (60-laps), given a new name, the Gatorade Duel, and from 2005 to 2012, used NASCAR's All-Exempt Tour format (similar to golf). The grids changed from even-odd qualifiers to a combination of even-odd based on the front row drivers by speed, then previous year's points standings (even-odd) of exempt and non-exempt teams by speed.[5] A rain delay in 2006 saw the second race finish under the lights.

Starting in 2007, the Gatorade Duel is shown live on Speed, under the new broadcast agreement. That same year, allegations of cheating came up. In 2013, Budweiser took over as sponsor of the Duels.

During Speedweeks 2013, Daytona International Speedway announced that the qualifying races would be held in prime-time and under stadium lighting on the Thursday before the Daytona 500 beginning in 2014, the races' debut on Fox Sports 1.

From 2016 to 2018, the races were renamed the Can-Am Duel after new title sponsor Bombardier Recreational Products' range of Can-Am All-terrain vehicles.

The Duels became a points event once again in 2017 with the unveiling of a new race format. The two race winners will receive ten points for their victories.[6]


  • Coors Light Pole qualifying is currently held one week prior to the Daytona 500. Since 2003, it has been held the Sunday before (except in 2010, when qualifying was held on Saturday to avoid conflict with Super Bowl XLIV). Prior to that, it was held the Saturday before (except for 1992) and the Wednesday before prior to the 1980s. Standard three-round knockout qualifying procedures are used for restrictor plate tracks. The fastest qualifier in the third round wins the pole position for the Daytona 500, and second fastest in the third round is considered the second starting position, also known as the "outside pole". Both front row starters are locked into those positions on the Daytona 500 starting grid.
  • The two fastest qualifiers above (the Daytona 500 pole winner and the "outside pole" winner) are awarded the first starting position on the grid for each of the two Duel races, respectively.
  • Drivers who qualify in odd-numbered positions in Q3 start in the first Can Am Duel, while those who qualify in even-numbered ones in that round start in the second Duel. This fills positions 1–6 in each Duel.
  • The 12 drivers eliminated after Q2 have their Q2 times determine their starting position. The fastest driver eliminated in Q2, based on Q2 times only, starts 7th in the first Duel, while the second-fastest driver in Q2 starts in that position in the second one and based on position of elimination from Q2, they start in the first (odd) or second (even) numbered positions.
  • Drivers eliminated after Q1 will have Q1 times determine their starting position. The fastest driver eliminated in Q1 starts 13th in the first Duel, while the second-fastest driver eliminated in Q1 starts in there in the second one.

Format (except 2005–12)[edit]

  • The Top 15 (14 until 2004) finishers in each Twin 125 race (excluding the two original front row qualifiers) advance to the Daytona 500 starting lineup.
    • The Top 15 (14 until 2004) from the first race (excluding the original pole position winner) fill the inside portions of rows 2 through 16 (15 until 2004).
    • The Top 15 (14 until 2004) from the second race (excluding the original outside pole winner) fill the outside portions of rows 2 through 16 (15 until 2004).
  • After both races, the remaining non-qualifiers revert to their original qualifying speeds. Currently the four fastest remaining cars are assigned positions 33–36. This format has been in place from 1998 to 2003 and 2013–present. This rule was to generally protect fast qualifying cars that suffered a crash or engine failure during the heats.
    • Starting in 2015 with knockout qualifying, a driver's qualifying speed is based on his fastest, regardless of it taking place in Q1, Q2, or Q3.
    • For 1998–2003, qualifying speeds filled positions 31–36.
    • For 1995–1997 and 2004, qualifying speeds filled positions 31–38.
    • Through 1994, qualifying speeds filled positions 31–40.
  • The final starting positions (37-42) are reserved for provisionals. The highest entries in championship owner points (not driver points) from the previous season that have not yet made the field are assigned grid positions 37–42.
    • Prior to 1995, the provisional system varies, with typically two cars added.
    • From 1995 to 1997, four provisionals were used.
    • From 1998 to 2003, seven provisionals were used.
    • In 2004, five provisionals were used.
    • Provisionals are assigned by owner points from the previous season.
  • Since 1990, the 43rd and final spot on the grid is tentatively reserved for the most recent NASCAR Cup champion not yet in the field. The "Champions Provisional" is used if needed, but if there are no former Cup champions in need of the slot, it reverts to a standard provisional spot.
  • Since 2013, after the seven provisionals are assigned, the starting order of positions 37 through 40 is determined by fastest qualifying speeds.

All Exempt Tour Format (2005–2012)[edit]

Between the 2005 and 2012 seasons, the Duel used different rules because of NASCAR's All Exempt Tour format used at the time for the NASCAR Cup Series.

  • All exempt teams (the previous season's Top 35 teams through owner points), along with the two drivers who qualified for the front row – the top two drivers from qualifying (if they are not exempt teams) are locked into the Daytona 500 starting field, regardless of finishing position in the Duel races.
  • The pole position winner is given the pole for the first Duel, and the driver who qualifies second is given the pole for the second Duel; regardless of their exempt status.
  • Exempt teams (excluding the pole and "outside pole" winners) are split among the two Duels based on their owner points position from the previous season. Odd-numbered points positions are entered into the first Duel and even-numbered points positions are entered into the second Duel.
    • If both teams on the front row in the Daytona 500 are even-positioned teams from the previous year's points (and would be in Duel 2), the slowest exempt team of the odd-positioned teams, based on the final points standings from the previous year, is moved to Duel 2. This was used in the 2012 Duels.
  • Non-exempt entries are split between the two qualifying races. The top qualifier among non-exempt teams provided the team is not on the front row is slotted into the second race (along with even ranked non-exempt qualifiers) are split into the second race, and even ranked qualifiers are in the first race (as if they were called 36th and 37th, et al.), unless both front row starters were odd or even teams from the previous year, or if one of the two non-exempt teams makes the front row.
  • After the participants are determined for the two Duels, the actual lineups for the two Duels revert to overall time trial speed rank.
  • The Top 2 finishers among the non-exempt teams (excluding any that happened to qualify on the front row) from each Duel advance to the Daytona 500.
  • Starting positions 3-39 are finalized by Duel finishes. Drivers from the first Duel start on the inside and drivers from the second Duel start on the outside.
    • Starting positions 3-40 (or 41) are finalized in this manner if one (or both) front row starter is a non-exempt team.
  • One to four additional positions are filled by non-exempt entries by original time trial speeds.
    • If both front row starters are non-exempt teams, only one position is available. If the 43rd position is not needed, two positions are available.
    • If one front row starters is a non-exempt team, two (or three) positions are available.
    • If both front row starters are exempt teams, three (or four) positions are available. This brings the field to 42 cars.
  • If there is a former NASCAR Cup Series champion driver who raced in the previous season racing for a non-exempt team and has yet to qualify, the most recent former champion not in the field yet takes the 43rd position. It is not unusual for a non-exempt team to seek out a former champion as their driver, as it provides an easier way to qualify. Otherwise, an extra position by time is available.

Early years[edit]

  • In the early years of the Daytona 500, the rules for the qualifying races varied widely. In 1959, the first race comprised the Convertible series, while the second comprised the Grand National series. The Top 20 finishers in each race advanced to the Daytona 500, while a last-chance, 25-mile (40 km) consolation race was held on Saturday, to fill the field to a maximum of 65 cars.
  • In early years, the qualifying races were held on the Friday prior to the Daytona 500, rather than the current Thursday.
  • On rare occasions, a 75-mile "consolation race" was also held.
  • In some early years, pole qualifying for the Daytona 500 was held on Wednesday, the day before the qualifying races. It was eventually moved up to the weekend before, and returned to Wednesday in 2021.
  • Typically, until 2014, the faster of two laps in single-car qualifying determined starting positions for the Duels and the front row for the 500.


  • In 2010, Jimmie Johnson and Kasey Kahne had a combined victory margin of .019 over second place drivers Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart.
  • Dale Earnhardt set a record by winning one of the Twin 125 races for ten consecutive years, twelve times overall, as well as six Bud Shootouts, before winning the 1998 Daytona 500.
  • Jeff Gordon won a Twin 125 in 1993, his rookie season. It marked his first win in a NASCAR Winston Cup event, however, it did not count as an official points-paying victory. He did not win an official points race until the 1994 Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte.
  • In 2007 Jeff Gordon won the race, but failed the post race inspection. He then "earned" the lowest Daytona 500 starting spot for a race winner, starting in 42nd place, but he was still credited with the victory.
  • Since the race became a non-championship heat race in 1971, two drivers who did not win a Cup race, Coo Coo Marlin and Mike Skinner, have won the race.
  • Four drivers have been killed in qualifying races. Talmadge "Tab" Prince was killed in 1970, Raymond "Friday" Hassler in 1972, Ricky Knotts in 1980 and Bruce Jacobi in 1983 (although he was in a coma for four years before dying in 1987).
  • Denny Hamlin won the second Gatorade Duel on February 14, 2008, making him the first ever Toyota driver to win a NASCAR Cup Series race.
  • A driver each from Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing won the Duel races from 2007 to 2009.
  • Randy LaJoie suffered a horrific crash in the 1984 UNO Twin 125 event when he spun out of turn 4, got airborne and slammed hard into the wall, then performed two backflips and a barrel roll, in an identical position as Ricky Rudd's Busch Clash accident days earlier. A rash of Turn 4 incidents (including Darrell Waltrip's crash in the same area that resulted in a concussion that would have suspended him from competition immediately under current NASCAR rules during the previous year's Daytona 500) resulted in the grass apron graded and paved over for the Firecracker 400 that July.
  • Oddly, despite Richard Petty's wins at Daytona in championship competition, none of his official 200 wins included a qualifying race (1959–71).
  • 2000 was Bill Elliott's only win as an owner/driver.

Past winners[edit]

  • 1961: First race was shortened due to crash.
  • 1974: Both races were shortened due to energy crisis (10% shorter).
  • 2006: Both races were extended due to a green–white–checker finish.
  • 2007, 2011 and 2018: First race was extended due to a NASCAR overtime.
  • 2008, 2015 and 2021: Second race was extended due to a NASCAR overtime.
  • 2017: Was the first time that points were on the line in Modern era (1972–present).
  • 2021: Second race was delayed 3 hours for rain, finished early Friday morning.

With the 2019 season serving as the 50th anniversary of Richard Childress Racing, we plan to dip into the archives to present the stories of iconic moments, race wins, championships and much more as part of our weekly Throwback Thursday series.

When it comes to Daytona International Speedway, Richard Childress Racing knows how to get the job done. Austin Dillon provided RCR with its third Daytona 500 victory in 2018, returning the No. 3 Chevrolet to Victory Lane 20 years after Dale Earnhardt accomplished the same feat.

In all, RCR has earned 12 NASCAR points-paying wins at Daytona International Speedway. However, that stat ignores the organization’s impressive run in the Duel qualifying races that precede the annual Daytona 500.

The annual Duel 150-mile qualifying events were originally Twin 125-mile races, which set the field for the Daytona 500. In 2005, NASCAR extended the pair of qualifying races to 150 miles each.

During the 1986 season, Dale Earnhardt delivered RCR’s first Twin 125 victory by leading 33 laps and taking the top spot from rival Geoffrey Bodine with 13 laps to go. That win was the first of 15 total Duel qualifying race wins that RCR has enjoyed over the years. That mark ties RCR and Hendrick Motorsports with the most victories in the Daytona qualifying races.

1986 Twin 125 Win

While the team has enjoyed success in the Duels over the years, RCR’s run of 10 consecutive victories from 1990 to 1999 is unmatched. In case you missed that, RCR and Earnhardt won every qualifying race entered during the 1990s.

During their time together, Earnhardt and Childress combined for 11 wins, 15 top-five and 16 top-10 finishes in the 125-mile qualifying races.

Earnhardt and team started that impressive run in 1990 with a dramatic race that saw the black No. 3 Chevrolet dive under Dick Trickle heading into Turn 3 with four laps remaining in the race. After leading a total of 24 of the 50 laps, Earnhardt earned his third Twin 125 win and second with RCR.

In 1991, Earnhardt dominated the event after going three-wide on the opening lap, putting the RCR Chevrolet out front for all 50 laps, besting Ernie Irvan and Kyle Petty in a fuel strategy race. During the 1992 running of the Twin 125, it was Earnhardt and Mark Martin that fought for the top spot, with Earnhardt putting his RCR Chevrolet in the lead with 10 laps remaining.

While rookie sensation Jeff Gordon was making headlines for winning his qualifying race in 1993, Earnhardt and the RCR crew were conducting business as usual in Daytona earning another Twin 125 win over Bodine. In 1994, Earnhardt battled eventual Daytona 500 winner Sterling Marlin for the top spot, with Earnhardt getting the advantage and leading 34 laps.

During the 1995 season, Chevrolet introduced the new Monte Carlo body style, which added another variable for the RCR crew. However, the off-season preparation paid off as Earnhardt held off a charge from Gordon and Marlin to earn his sixth-straight win.

Marlin gave him another run for his money in 1996, but Earnhardt drove the No. 3 RCR Chevrolet to the front of the field on Lap 30 and the Intimidator never looked back to earn his seventh-straight qualifying race win. Earnhardt’s RCR Chevrolet also claimed the Daytona 500 pole that year – his first and only pole in the ‘Great American Race.’

“I was really happy to keep that streak of 125s alive,” Earnhardt told Mike Joy in Victory Lane. “That’s pretty impressive.”

Twin 125 Seven Straight

“The streak wasn’t really talked about until we won seven races in a row,” said longtime RCR employee and current Xfinity Series competition director Danny Lawrence.

“Once it started gaining attention, we started wondering, ‘OK, who is going to be the crew chief that loses that first one?’” Lawrence joked.

In 1997, a caution halfway through the race stacked the field up and gave Earnhardt the chance to get by John Andretti for the lead. He would go on to lead the final 32 laps of the race and hold off Gordon for the victory.

The following year, Earnhardt led all 50 laps of his Twin 125 qualifier. On Sunday, he would finally kick his bad luck and earn his first Daytona 500 victory.

The final year of Earnhardt and RCR’s impressive streak came in 1999 when the cagy veteran wasted no time moving up from his fifth starting spot and getting by up-and-coming rookie Tony Stewart after just seven laps.

While Lawrence pointed out RCR was bringing top-notch equipment to the track during this time, it was Earnhardt’s ability at Daytona – and particularly in this format – that truly made the difference.

“He just knew how to get the job done,” he said. “It didn’t matter who was in his race or what, he just knew how to win. We would qualify mid-pack sometimes and he would just work his way up through the field and win and we would start third or fourth in the Daytona 500.”

RELATED: Celebrating 50 Years of Richard Childress Racing

The streak finally came to an end in 2000, when Earnhardt’s Twin 125 race featured very little passing throughout the field. While a small pack of cars was able to break away in the draft, the Chevrolets battled handling issues and were unable to make a charge to the front of the field. Earnhardt drove the red Tasmanian Devil-themed RCR Chevrolet to an 11th-place finish and for the first time in a decade was not in Victory Lane on Thursday afternoon.

“When the Daytona 500 came around, there were so many times we would say, ‘Well, we won the Busch Clash, we won the Twin 125, we won this, we won that, but we would give up all of that for the Daytona 500 win,” Lawrence recalled. “I can remember in 2000 saying, ‘Maybe this is the year we win the Daytona 500 again, because we had won the Twin 125s every other year and only had the one win in the 500. Once you win it, you want to win it again and again and again.”

In his final Twin 125 start in 2001, Earnhardt started deep in the field and worked his way to the front of the pack after taking four tires early. With 10 laps to go, Earnhardt’s No. 3 RCR Chevrolet was in the 10th position, but in just two laps he was back in front of the field. When a caution flew with just four laps to go, the field was reset for a one-lap shootout.

With a strong push from behind, Marlin was able to get to the inside of Earnhardt and grab the lead gong into the final two corners. In the end, Earnhardt brought the No. 3 RCR Chevrolet home in the third spot.

Although Earnhardt missed out on another Twin 125 win, his RCR teammate Mike Skinner was able to earn the win in his race, giving the organization its 12th win in qualifying races.

That success carried on through the 2000s, as Robby Gordon (2003), Jeff Burton (2011) and Kevin Harvick (2013) all took RCR to Victory Lane in the Twin 125/Duel 150s.

This year’s Can-Am Duel at Daytona is scheduled to take place on Thursday, Feb. 14 at 7 p.m. ET on FS1.

2018 twin 125 daytona


Austin Dillon edged out Bubba Wallace coming to the finish line to win the second Bluegreen Vacations Duel race in overtime late Thursday night, into Friday morning at Daytona International Speedway.

Wallace took the lead on the final lap and held it until the exit of Turn 4 when Dillon dove from the top lane to the bottom lane to get underneath Wallace’s No. 23 23XI Racing Toyota, gaining enough momentum in the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet to grab the victory, earning 10 points toward the regular-season standings.

It is the first Daytona qualifying race Dillon has won and he did it leading the only two laps on the night, lap 33 and then the last lap (63). It was similar to what he did in winning the 2018 Daytona 500 in the famed Richard Childress Racing No. 3 Chevrolet when he led only the last lap – finishing a quarter-second ahead of Wallace then too.

“I was talking to my spotter before the restart and he was like, ‘We’ve got the 4 (Kevin Harvick) behind us and he’s been pushing well all night.’ He had the 12 (Ryan Blaney in a Ford, like Harvick) so I knew the manufacturer thing was going to be tough,” Dillon said. “I made a decent block on the backstretch and just a heckuva push through (Turns) 3 and 4. I knew Bubba was going to try and block, but I just whipped the wheel and it worked out well.”

Wallace held on for second place, followed by Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Chase Elliott to round out the top five.

A crash with three laps remaining brought out the second caution of the race to set up the overtime battle. The wreck occurred when Garrett Smithley, who had to race his way into the Daytona 500, and Brad Keselowski came together going into Turn 1. Daytona 500 front-row starter William Byron was also involved and received significant damage on his No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. Others collected included Ross Chastain in the No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet and Noah Gragson in the No. 62 Beard Motorsports Chevrolet.

Gragson, who also needed to race his way in, retired from the race and will miss the Daytona 500 in his first attempt.

The calamity worked out for David Ragan, who raced his way into Sunday’s race with an eighth-place result. Ragan was already locked in with the second-fastest Open car speed from Wednesday night’s single-car qualifying session. Ragan’s finish therefore meant Kaz Grala in the No. 16 Kaulig Racing Chevrolet earned the final spot up for grabs.

Grala was initially involved in an earlier crash on Lap 36 involving Anthony Alfredo, Chase Briscoe and Smithley. Rookie Briscoe lost control of the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford at the exit of Turn 2. Alfredo, a rookie in the No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford, and McLeod in the new No. 78 Live Fast Motorsports Ford were unable to continue, but both were previously locked into the race as members of Charter teams.

NASCAR Cup Series drivers will be on track next for the Daytona 500’s second practice Saturday at 9:30 a.m. ET on FS2.


Aric Almirola held off a hard charge from Joey Logano coming to the checkered flag to win Thursday night’s Bluegreen Vacations Duel 1 at Daytona International Speedway.

Almirola, driver of the No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford, led 52 of the 60-lap qualifying race for Sunday’s Daytona 500 (2:30 p.m. ET, FOX, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

Joe Gibbs Racing’s Christopher Bell passed Logano coming to the finish line to finish second, followed by Ryan Newman, Logano and Ryan Preece to round out the top five.

Preece edged Ty Dillon by a scant .04 seconds at the finish line to race his way into the Daytona 500. That gave reigning NASCAR Xfinity Series champion Austin Cindric a starting bid based on qualifying speed – despite his 16th-place finish in the Duel due to a pit-road speeding penalty – and sent Ty Dillon home. Three of the four transfer positions were then evident after the first Duel – with Preece, Cindric and David Ragan (who qualified on speed). Another will be determined in the second Duel.

“First of all, I get the bonehead-of-the-race award for speeding on the last section of pit road when I nailed everything else the whole night that I didn’t know how to do,” Team Penske driver Cindric said of receiving a speeding penalty after a mid-race pit stop. “I’m obviously really happy to get the Verizon 5G Ford Mustang into the big show. Obviously, a lot for me left to learn, but racing on the biggest stage against the best drivers, it’s an amazing opportunity.”

The Fords – specifically Almirola – dominated Duel 1, spending most of the race bumper-to-bumper in varying order out front. Almirola and Logano, the 2015 Daytona 500 winner, spent a lot of time running 1-2. There were nine lead changes among five drivers.

After the race, the Tampa, Florida, native Almirola smiled and mentioned the recent good run for Tampa sports – a nod to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl win last week.

“Great way to start Speedweeks,” Almirola said. “This thing is really fast and I can’t wait until Sunday.”

With 29 laps to go, Daytona 500 pole-sitter Alex Bowman reported to his No. 48 Chevrolet team that he felt like the engine was “blowing up,” but after the crew checked under the hood, he returned to the track. He finished 20th in the event.

Two-time defending Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin, who is trying to become the first driver in history to win three consecutive versions of NASCAR’s Great American Race, finished 13th. He had to push his No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota back into the pits after the race because he ran out of fuel on the final lap – after taking the white flag in fourth position.

NOTE: Both the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet of Austin Dillon and the No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford of Aric Almirola passed post-race technical inspection Thursday night/Friday morning after winning the NASCAR Cup Series’ Bluegreen Vacations Duel races at the Daytona International Speedway. There were no other issues.

What do you want to say. In whose eyes. Answer. But there was no answer, and then the girl closed her eyes and stepped on the sharp forest carpet. The pain brought her legs together, groaning, Constance.

You will also be interested:

My lips began to kiss her cheek, slowly going down to her neck, and my hand was already crushing her chest through the fabric of her dress. - What are you doing. She asked fearfully, trying to push me away. - We're not alone here, and it's not the time now. - The window to the driver is closed, dear, so he won't see anything.
