After action got underway two weekends ago at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum with the Busch Light Clash, the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season is officially scheduled to begin this Sunday afternoon with the 66th annual Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

The starting lineup for this year's 200-lap "Great American Race" was set earlier this week via the single-car qualifying session on Wednesday and the Bluegreen Vacations Duels on Thursday. The single-car session solidified the Daytona 500 front row and the starting lineups for the Duels, while the Duels solidified the remainder of the 40-car lineup for the Daytona 500.

A full Daytona 500 starting lineup can be found here.

The Daytona 500 is a superspeedway race, and such races are considered "wild card" or "equalizer" type races, given the nature of pack racing. Everybody truly has a chance to win, and simply surviving until the final lap is the hardest part.

Thanks to FanDuel Sportsbook, you can place a $5 bet on any driver and walk away with an additional $150 in bonus bets -- in addition to your regular winnings -- if you bet hits.

It's effectively a +3000 odds boost.

Picking a Daytona 500 winner is never easy, but the potential bonus reward for doing so this year with just a $5 wager is too good to pass up.

If the driver you pick to win the race does win the race, you will walk away with those winnings as well. Team Penske's Ryan Blaney is aiming to become the first reigning Cup Series champion to win a Daytona 500 since Dale Jarrett pulled it off in 2000, and he is listed as the favorite at +1000. This means that a successful $5 bet on Blaney would win you $50, plus $150 in bonus bets.

Here are the top five favorites to take the checkered flag.
