NASCAR Cup: Can-Am Duel line-ups

Hendrick Motorsports teammates Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Chase Elliott are the only two Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers who already know where they will be starting Sunday’s season-opening Daytona 500 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. Elliott will start from the pole for the second-consecutive year, while Earnhardt starts alongside on the front row from the second spot.
Everyone else had to wait until the running of Thursday night’s two Can-Am Duel races to find out where they’ll start the first official race of the season. Each Can-Am Duel will consist of 60 laps or 150 miles. The first is scheduled to take the green flag at approximately 7 p.m. ET Thursday, with the second to follow at approximately 9 p.m. ET. Both may be seen live on FOX Sports 1.
