2016 Daytona 500 live stream: How to watch online

Dale Earnhardt Jr. will try for his third win at the Daytona 500 Sunday afternoon, as the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup season starts off with the sport's premiere race from Daytona International Speedway.

Earnhardt won the Daytona 500 in 2004 and 2014, and he has one more victory at the event than did his father, the 1998 champion. Little E will start in third position Sunday by virtue of winning the first Can-Am Duel Thursday night, winning the first of two 150-lap tuneups at the track.

"You know [Earnhardt] is going to be tough to beat," Kevin Harvick said this week, per Jordan Bianchi of SB Nation. "He has been really fast on all of these race tracks for the last couple of years, more than that, but extremely fast for the last couple of years with this particular rules package."

Pre-race coverage of Earnhardt and the other 39 drivers on Sunday begins at 10:30 a.m. ET on Fox Sports 1 with NASCAR Raceday, then switches over to Fox at noon, with full race coverage beginning at 1 p.m.

Mike Joy will be on play-by-play for the race, along with analysts Darrell Waltrip, Jeff Gordon and Larry McReynolds, with reporting from Jamie Little, Chris Neville, Vince Welch and Matt Yocum.

Full coverage is available online or via app through Fox Sports Go. The radio broadcast is also available online through the Motor Racing Network.
