It’s time to set the starting lineup for Daytona 500.

Of course, qualifying for NASCAR’s biggest race is a bit different than other events. The first row was set last week when rookie Chase Elliott grabbed the pole and Matt Kenseth earned the No. 2 position, but now the other 38 spots in the Great American Race need to be determined.

That’s done via the Can-Am Duels, which have a new name this year after being called the Budweiser Duels the last couple of seasons. The first duel will determine the inside row (odd-number starting positions), the second duel will determine the outside row and the top Open team finisher in each race will secure the final two spots in the 500, so there is a lot on the line during the 150-mile battles.

Here’s a look at how to watch:

The first week of NASCAR’s 2016 season kicks into high gear with the Can-Am Duel helping to fill in the field of 40 cars for the Daytona 500. With NASCAR announcing new rules including the 36 team charter system that are automatically entered into race qualifying, the Can-Am Duel is the only way for open teams to find their way into the SuperBowl of NASCAR.

The Can-Am Duel races determine the four open teams who qualify for Daytona 500 and also set the race order. Additionally, this event is a nice precursor to what is to come in the biggest race of the NASCAR regular season schedule, the Daytona 500. It will be interesting to see how the two drivers who earn a front row spot attack the races.
