It’s almost the greatest time of the year for racing fans across the country.

With the Daytona 500 coming up on Sunday, qualifying is officially over, and we have the official starting lineup for this year’s race, according to NBC Sports.

Kyle Larson won the pole for Hendrick Motorsports on Wednesday, and will be joined by teammate Alex Bowman on the front row.

Brad Keselowski won the qualifying race on Thursday night, and will start third. RFK Racing teammate Chris Buescher, who won the second qualifying race Thursday, will join him on the second row.

Joey Logano was originally supposed to start 20th, but will go to the rear of the 40-car field after going to a backup car after a crash on the final lap of his qualifying race.

The four non-chartered cars making the field are Greg Biffle (Starting 28th), Kaz Grala (35th), Noah Gragson (39th), and Jacques Villeneuve (4oth).


And we have Luke Combs doing the pre-race entertainment, as well as Trace Adkins singing the national anthem… can’t beat it with a stick.
