Daytona 500 Qualifying
Qualifying for the Daytona 500 is unique in NASCAR. Only the two front row starters are determined by the unique qualifying process of single-car better of two timed laps. After the top two positions are locked in, the rest of the starting grid is set by the finishing order of these two races. All drivers participate in one of the two races, including the drivers who locked their positions on the front row from qualifying. The first duel includes the drivers who qualified in the odd positions. The top 14 in the race is how the inside lane will start during the Daytona 500, provided after the one engine change allowed in Friday's first practice, they do not have to change an engine. The second Duel includes the drivers who qualified in the even positions and the top 14 where they finish will set the outside starting lane for the Daytona 500. After the Duels are completed, and the top 30 is set by the above order, the six fastest non-qualifiers by time, and finally the six or seven highest-earning teams in points not in the race yet advance, and the starting grid for the Daytona 500 would then be set.
