After a three-and-a-half-month offseason, NASCAR Cup Series action is officially set to get back underway this weekend with the 66th annual Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Action returned two weekends ago with the preseason Busch Light Clash exhibition race at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, a race won by Joe Gibbs Racing's Denny Hamlin, but the Daytona 500 is the first of 36 points races on this year's schedule, which runs from this weekend all the way to November.

The starting lineup for Sunday afternoon's 200-lap "Great American Race" around the four-turn, 2.5-mile (4.023-kilometer) high-banked Daytona Beach, Florida oval was set via the single-car qualifying session on Wednesday night and the two Bluegreen Vacations Duels on Thursday night.

Team Penske's Joey Logano is set to start the race from the pole position behind the wheel of his No. 22 Ford, while Front Row Motorsports' Michael McDowell is set to join him on the front row behind the wheel of his No. 34 Ford.
