DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – Now that the Gander RV Duels are behind us, the starting lineup for the 61st annual Daytona 500 (2:30 p.m. ET/FOX/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Both front row qualifier made it through the 150 mile qualifying races unscathed, meaning they’ll keep their 1-2 starting positions.
But, Ford’s stole the show on Thursday night as they finished 1-2-3 in each race. How else will the lineup shape up?
Hendrick Motorsports shares Row 1, but due to their lack of success in the Duels, they’ll share Row 9 too.
