The 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season-opening Daytona 500 is scheduled to take place less than one week from today at Daytona International Speedway -- weather permitting, of course.

The entry list for the 66th annual running of the "Great American Race" is not yet set in stone, as there is still a possible entry that has not yet been confirmed. It is currently sitting at 41 cars, and only 40 can compete in the 200-lap race around the four-turn, 2.5-mile (4.023-kilometer) high-banked Daytona Beach, Florida oval.

There are effectively five drivers battling for four spots that go to non-charter entries, as the 36 charter cars are locked in. Teams have until Wednesday to be added to the entry list, as that is when the garage is scheduled to open and when the single-car qualifying session (Fox Sports 1, 8:15 p.m. ET) is scheduled to be held.

The single-car session solidifies the front row for the Daytona 500 and the starting lineups for the Bluegreen Vacations Duels, which are scheduled to take place on Thursday (Fox Sports 1, 7:00 p.m. ET). It also locks the fastest two non-charter entries into the field. The Duel results solidify the rest of the Daytona 500 starting lineup and also determine which other two non-charter cars get in.

Here's a look at the 41 confirmed Daytona 500 entries with less than 48 hours remaining until the deadline.
