Heading into Thursday’s Bluegreen Vacations Duel races at Daytona, we already knew the front row for Sunday’s Daytona 500 main event — superspeedway ace Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is on the Busch Pole, and Hendrick Motorsports driver Alex Bowman will start second for the second consecutive year when the green flag drops Feb. 16 (2:30 p.m. ET, FOX).

Thursday’s twin 60-lap races set the remainder of the running order, as well as the final two spots in the field.

Following the Bluegreen Vacations Duel races, here is the official Daytona 500 starting lineup.
