JEFF GORDON, JIMMIE JOHNSON TO LEAD THE FIELDS ON THURSDAY

Below are lineups for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Daytona Duels slated for Thursday at Daytona International Speedway.

Jeff Gordon, the pole sitter, and Jimmie Johnson are locked into the front row for next Sunday's Daytona 500 based on Sunday qualifying. Other drivers locked in are Aric Almirola, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Jamie McMurray and Carl Edwards.

The two 150-mile qualifying races will set positions three through 32 for the 500. Positions 33 through 36 will go to the four drivers who posted the fastest speeds in qualifying but fail to transfer through the Duels. Positions 37 through 42 are provisional starting spots available to the top finishers in the 2014 owners’ standings not otherwise qualified.

The 43rd starting spot goes to the most recent past champion not otherwise qualified. If there is no past champion who fails to make the field through qualifying or the Duels, the 43rd position becomes a seventh provisional.

The Duels will be broadcast live by Fox Sports 1, beginning at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday.
