DAYTONA 500

HOW LINE UP IS SET

 

QUALIFYING

 

What is the format?
This event will determine the front row (spots 1 and 2) for the Daytona 500. There will be two rounds of single-car qualifying, with the 12 fastest cars in Round 1 advancing to Round 2. There will be a 10-minute break between rounds, and cars will make their Round 2 run based on Round 1 times (slowest going first, fastest last).

The fastest time in Round 2 will be the Coors Light Pole Award winner for the Daytona 500. The second-fastest time in Round 2 will earn the other spot on the front row for the Daytona 500. The pole winner will start first in the first Can-Am Duel race on Thursday. The other front-row driver will start first in the second Can-Am Duel race.

The rest of the field will line up for Thursday’s Can-Am Duels based on qualifying time, with odd-numbered finishers lining up in the first Duel, and even-numbered finishers lining up for the second Duel.

CAN-AM DUELS

What is the format?
The Can-Am Duels will determine spots 3-38 in the Daytona 500 grid. With 36 Charter teams entered in the race, two of these spots will be filled by the top Open car in each Duel race. The qualifiers from the first Duel will line up on the inside row in the Daytona 500 depending upon their finish in Duel 1. The qualifiers from the second Duel will line up on the outside row for the Daytona 500 depending upon their result in Duel 2.

The remaining two spots on the Daytona 500 grid will be awarded to the top Open teams from Sunday’s qualifying that are still left (i.e. didn’t qualify through the Duels).
