After last weekend’s qualifying we only knew the first two positions for Sunday’s Daytona 500: Jeff Gordon on the pole and Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson joining him in the front row.

But now that the Budweiser Duels have concluded, we know the rest of the 43-car field and lineup order.

The starting grid consists of two-car rows.

Gordon and Johnson will begin the race in Row 1. As the pole sitter, Gordon is on the inside and Johnson outside.

Thanks to his Duel 1 victory, Dale Earnhardt Jr., another Hendrick driver, will start on the inside of Row 2, the No. 3 overall position.

Here is the complete starting lineup:
