Daytona 500 Starting Lineup


The starting lineup is set for the 56th running of the Daytona 500 from Daytona International Speedway on Sunday. It was already known that rookie Austin Dillion and Martin Truex Jr. would start up front based on their qualifying performances last weekend, but the rest of the field had yet to be determined.

The final qualifying took place on Thursday night as the drivers raced in the Budweiser Duel at Daytona to determine who’s in an who’s out. While Dillon will be at the pole on Sunday in his original car, Truex won’t be so lucky. On the last lap of the second qualifying race, Truex was involved in a wreck that also took Jimmy Johnson, Carl Edwards and Jamie McMurray as victims. Truex will likely have to start the race in a backup car.
