The green flag for the 61st running of the Daytona 500 and the official start to the NASCAR Cup Series season – is set for Sunday at 2:30 p.m. ET. William Byron will start from the pole alongside Hendrick Motorsports teammate Alex Bowman.
The 21-year-old, Byron, will seek to become the first driver in nearly 20 years to win The Great American Race from the pole position. And while Dale Jarrett was the last to do it in 2000, it was exactly 20 years ago that Jeff Gordon won both the Daytona 500 pole and race in the same No. 24 car for the same team.
Byron is listed at 40-to-1 to take the checkered flag, the same odds Austin Dillon had when he won the race last year. This time around, Dillon comes in at 30-to-1, although it should be noted that he opened at 40-to-1 before an adjustment after the Gander RV Duels. Those same duels helped determine the rest of the starting lineup, which you’ll find below. You’ll also find viewing information for the race.
