The 2019 NASCAR Cup Series gets underway with the 61st iteration of the Daytona 500 on Sunday. The race is set to begin at 2:30 p.m. ET, with an approximate Green Flag time of 2:50 p.m. It will be broadcast by FOX (live streaming via FOX Sports GO, FuboTV). William Byron of Hendrick Motorsports has pole position after he finished on top in qualifying and kept his car intact in the first Duel.

He’ll have his teammate, Alex Bowman, keeping him company on the front row. Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano, winners of the Daytona 500 Duels, will have the second row. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has fifth after he beat out Paul Menard by one thousandth of a second in the first Duel.

Clint Bowyer looked like he was going to win the second Duel, leading for the majority of the face, including into the final lap. But Logano took an assist from teammate Ryan Blaney and shot right around Bowyer to take the lead in the closing seconds.

Parker Kligerman of Gaunt Brothers Racing, Brendan Gaughan of Beard Motorsports, Tyler Reddick of Richard Childress Racing and Casey Mears of Germain Racing are the four drivers from non-charter teams who raced their way in on Thursday.

We have the full lineup and starting grid for the Daytona 500 below, and under that, you can find all the viewing information you need to follow along on Sunday. Non-charter teams who raced their way in are marked with an asterisk.
