The 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season is scheduled to get underway this Sunday afternoon with the 66th annual Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. But first, the starting lineup must be set for the "Great American Race".

The qualifying process for this 200-lap race around the four-turn, 2.5-mile (4.023-kilometer) high-banked Daytona Beach, Florida oval is unique.

There is a single-car qualifying session set to take place on Wednesday night (Fox Sports 1, 8:15 p.m. ET) to set both the front row for the Daytona 500 and the starting lineups for Thursday night's two Bluegreen Vacations Duels (Fox Sports 1, 7:00 p.m. ET). The results of those Duels are set to determine the remainder of the starting lineup.

With 42 cars on the entry list and the 36 charter cars locked into the 40-car field, there are six non-charter entries going for the final four spots. Two drivers are set to lock in via the single-car session, while two more are set to lock in via the Duels, which will ultimately eliminate the other two.

The qualifying order for Wednesday night's single-car qualifying session was set by two random draws. All entries that did not finish in the top 20 in last year's owner standings drew for the first 22 spots, while all entries that did finish in the top 20 drew for the final 20.

Here is the full qualifying order for the Daytona 500.
