Daytona 500 Lineup 2018: Complete Starting Order

Sunday marks the 60th running of the Daytona 500, also known as The Great American Race.
Today’s race kicks off a new season of competition as NASCAR’s top drivers look to get off to a hot start and begin positioning themselves for the Chase For The Cup right out of the gate.
Sitting on the pole for the big race will be Alex Bowman, with Denny Hamlin on the outside. Ryan Blaney and Chase Elliott will sit on the second row.
The Daytona 500 is 200 laps around the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway.
The green flag will be waved at 2:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
Former Daytona 500 winners that will be on the track Sunday afternoon are Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, Jimmie Johnson, Trevor Bayne, Jamie McMurray, Ryan Newman and Kevin Harvick.
Brad Keselowski is a 7-to-1 favorite to take the checkered flag, while Chase Elliott (8-to-1) and Denny Hamlin (9-to-1) following closely behind. Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch all sit with 12-to-1 odds.
Sunday will also mark the final NASCAR Cup Series start for Danica Patrick, who became the first female driver to ever secure a top-10 finish at Daytona. Patrick will be driving the No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet as she looks to stun the field in her final start.
