Qualifying for the prestigious Daytona 500 is unlike any other event on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule, and two of the entries on the official list won’t qualify for the “Great American Race.”

Thirty-six Charter teams have their spots locked in, leaving six Open, non-Chartered entries competing for the final four spots. Two drivers will lock in on speed via Wednesday’s single-car qualifying, and two more will race their way in during Thursday’s Blue Green Vacations Duel races.

The six entries competing for those four spots: Kaz Grala (No. 36 Front Row Motorsports Ford), JJ Yeley (No. 44 NY Racing Team Chevrolet), David Ragan (No. 60 RFK Racing Ford), Anthony Alfredo (No. 62 Beard Motorsports Chevrolet), BJ McLeod (No. 78 Live Fast Motorsports Chevrolet) and Jimmie Johnson (No. 84 Legacy Motor Club Toyota).
