Daytona 500 Duel qualifying starting lineups

Nate Ryan harkens back to the first NASCAR race that was broadcast in full, and a snowstorm that created a captive audience for Donnie Allison and Cale Yarborough's Daytona fight.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Four drivers will be aiming for starting positions in Sunday’s Daytona 500 in Thursday night’s pair of 150-mile qualifying races.

Chandler Smith, Zane Smith, Austin Hill and Conor Daly -- all driving for non-charter teams -- failed to make the 500 grid on qualifying speed during Wednesday night’s time-trial round.

Jimmie Johnson and Travis Pastrana, the other non-charter drivers on the entry list, made the 500 field on speed Wednesday night.

Alex Bowman won the pole in Wednesday’s session, and Kyle Larson, his Hendrick Motorsports teammate, will start second. They locked into those starting positions Wednesday night.

Thursday’s first Duel qualifying race is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET (FS1). The second race will follow a few minutes after the end of the first race.
