Feb. 15 (UPI) -- The field is set for the 2019 Daytona 500. Here is the starting lineup, as well as your guide for how to watch Sunday's "Great American Race."

Hendrick Motorsports' William Byron will lead the race in his No. 24 Chevrolet. Byron, 21, reached a top speed of 194.304 mph in the final round of qualifying on Sunday. He will be joined in the front row by 25 year old teammate Alex Bowman, who starts in the No. 2 spot.

The duo will be the youngest front row in Daytona 500 history.

"I feel like there are a lot of things that we are going through for the first time," Byron told reporters. "But for me it's kinda being here for the second time. It feels really comfortable. I get to go through he garage the same way. I don't have to worry about the newness of the Cup series. I know we have a group of 100 guys to go after it with."
