One half of the Daytona 500 race order is officially settled for Sunday.

The Daytona 500 is less than three days away, and the race order is getting settled. The Bluegreen Vacations Duel 1 is a wrap, and the odd-numbered field is settled behind Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. and Alex Bowman.

Joey Logano won Duel 1, battling Stenhouse late, and holding him off en route to victory. Logano will line up in the third spot, Aric Almirola has the fifth spot, Ryan Newman has the seventh spot, and so on through the odd-numbered starting positions. Stenhouse and Bowman had the top two qualifying speeds last Sunday to secure the front row of the Great American Race.

Logano and Brad Keselowski held the top odds to win the race and claim top three spots. Keselowski just missed out on a top three spot. Almirola and Newman edged him out for the top three finish.

We’ll see new Daytona 500 odds when the second Duel is a wrap. Logano had been even with Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, and Denny Hamlin as co-favorites, but the final race order might shake it up at least a little bit.
