Starting lineup set for the Duels at Daytona

Daytona 500 pole qualifying set the field for the Duels at Daytona where drivers will race it out for their starting positions in the big race.

Alex Bowman delivered Hendrick Motorsports yet another Daytona 500 pole with teammate William Byron alongside. These two will take the green as the pole-sitter in their respective Duel races Thursday evening.

Their starting positions are also the only ones unaffected by where they finish in the twin 150-mile, 60-lap races.

Additionally, Ryan Preece and David Ragan qualified best among the eight open times and locked themselves into the race, leaving just two spots for the remaining six open teams to fight for.
