The NASCAR Cup Series is back to kick off a brand new season is a brand new car with the 64th running of the Daytona 500. The starting lineup for this race was set through a combination of methods: the front row went to the two fastest cars in qualifying on Wednesday, and then the rest of the lineup was determined by how the cars finished in their respective Duels on Thursday night. Starting position means nothing at Daytona, though, so the biggest significance of this is for fantasy purposes where place differential is factored into scoring.
