NASCAR releases 2014 Daytona 500 entry list

Chris Graythen

The entry list for the 2014 Daytona 500 features 49 drivers competing for a spot in the 43-car race.

Forty-nine drivers will compete for one of 43 spots in the 2014 Daytona 500.

The entry list for the "Great American Race," to be held Feb. 23 at Daytona International Speedway, includes nine former winners, and eight drivers vying to make their first Daytona 500 start.

Despite NASCAR revising its qualifying format and introducing group qualifying at oval track races, the new system will not be implemented until the second event of the season at Phoenix International Raceway. Determining the 43-car field for the Daytona 500 will continue to consist of various stages, with the front row determined Feb. 16 via single-car runs.

Positions 3-32 will be set by the finishing order of the Feb. 20 Budweiser Duel qualifying races. Positions 33-36 will go to the drivers who qualified the fastest but didn't earn a spot in one of the two qualifying races.

The final seven spots are provisionals based on 2013 owner points and whether a former champion has yet to qualify.
