The Daytona 500 is scheduled to get underway Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. ET at Daytona Motor Speedway, and the full racing order is set. Qualifying began last Sunday, and one qualifying lap and two 150-mile qualifying races later, the 40-car starting lineup is set.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. claimed the pole position with the fastest lap at last Sunday’s qualifying. Alex Bowman claimed the second spot on the front row with the second fastest lap. On Thursday, the rest of the lineup was settled at the Bluegreen Vacations Duels. Duel 1 determined the odd-numbered starting positions behind Stenhouse, starting with No. 3. Duel 2 determined the odd-numbered starting positions behind Stenhouse, starting with No. 4. Joey Logano won Duel 1 and William Byron won Duel 2.

36 of the 40 drivers race for charter teams and were guaranteed a spot in the Daytona 500 field. The remaining four spots were determined between seven Open, non-charter teams. The four Open Team spots are determined by the two best finishing spots in each of the Duels. Timmy Hill and Justin Haley claimed spots No. 32 and 33, and Brendan Gaughan and Reed Sorenson claimed spots No. 39 and 40.

Here is the full lineup for Sunday’s Great American Race.
