Daytona 500 preview

We've all had to be patient, but after rain forced the postponement of the 66th Daytona 500, reigning champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will belatedly defend his title today at the Daytona International Speedway.

NASCAR Cup Series champion Ryan Blaney is the pre-race favourite, though he’s never quite managed to get over the line at Daytona, finishing runner-up twice and coming close on numerous occasions. 

Just as F1 is the zenith of single-seater racing, Daytona 500 the pinnacle of stock car racing, and it’s hardly surprising when the prize pot is $28 million – the single biggest purse in motorsport.

In-form drivers Kyle Larson, William Byron, Chase Elliot, Christopher Bell are all desperately vying for the chance to win the prestigious title, as are Martin Truex Jr and Denny Hamlin, the oldest heads in the field, with both turning 44 this year. 

Although Hamlin is a three-time winner, time is running out for Truex as he seeks a maiden Daytona victory at his 20th attempt.

The 2024 Daytona 500 starts at 4pm ET / 1pm PT / 9pm GMT / 8am AEDT today, Monday, 19th February. Read on as we explain how to watch a 2024 Daytona 500 live stream from anywhere in the world.
