NASCAR Cup Daytona 500

2024 Daytona 500: Complete starting lineup in pictures

The field is set for the 66th running of the Daytona 500, with the Fords of Joey Logano and Michael McDowell on the front row for NASCAR's crown jewel event.

Forty cars will start the most-watched motorsports event in the United States this weekend, which also serves as the annual season-opener for the NASCAR Cup Series.

Logano earned Team Penske its first-ever pole in the 500 on Wednesday, ending a 11-year streak of Chevrolet dominating time trials at the 2.5-mile superspeedway.

Both B.J. McLeod and J.J. Yeley narrowly missed earning a spot in the 500 during Thursday's Duel races, which were won by Tyler Reddick and Christopher Bell.

Several drivers will be forced into backup cars after the frantic qualifying races. They include defending NASCAR Cup Series champion Ryan Blaney, William Byron, Kyle Busch, Noah Gragson, and Daniel Hemric. Many others have to make repairs to their primary cars.
