Official lineup for 2018 Daytona 500

RELATED: Full Speedweeks schedule | Paint scheme preview: DaytonaBlaney, Elliott win Duel races 

Heading into Thursday’s Can-Am Duel races at Daytona, we already knew the front row for Sunday’s main event — Alex Bowman is on the pole and Denny Hamlin will start second when the green flag drops Feb. 18 (2:30 p.m. ET, FOX, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

We also knew that the dual 60-lap races would set the remainder of the running order.

As a refresher, Duel 1 results set the inside row of the Daytona 500 starting lineup. Duel 2 set the outside row.

Following the Can-Am Duel races, here is the official Daytona 500 starting lineup.
