The Great American Race is back! The 2020 Daytona 500 gets underway Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. on FOX and live streamed on Fox Sports Go. The 500-mile race takes place at Daytona Motor Speedway and this year marks the 62nd annual running of what has affectionally been called the Great American Race.
Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. has claimed the pole position in the race and Alex Bowman will join him on the front row of the race. The two claimed their spots last Sunday in single-car qualifying. The remaining 38 spots were determined by the Bluegreen Vacations Duels. Duel 1 determined the odd-numbered starting positions behind Stenhouse and Duel 2 determined the even-numbered starting positions behind Bowman.
