Denny Hemlin, of the Joe Gibbs Racing team, is chasing a third straight Daytona 500 win and fourth victory overall in the Great American Race. He is starting from 25th place on the grid.
The Hendrick Motorsports team will have high hopes for race day, with pole sitter Alex Bowman and No.2 qualifier William Byron both members of the Hendrick stable.
When is the Daytona 500?
This year's Daytona 500 gets underway at 6:30am AEDT on Monday 15 February.
How to watch the Daytona 500
Fox Sports ended its association with NASCAR in early 2019, meaning your only option for viewing the series in Australia live was streaming service NASCAR Trackpass. You can see our comprehensive guide to NASCAR Trackpass here.
Stream the Daytona 500 on Kayo Sports
After the trial period, a Basic subscription is $25 a month which allows you to watch on 2 screens. There is also a Premium subscription for $35 a month that offers a third screen. You can check out all the details in our Kayo Sports review.
Watch the Daytona 500 on Foxtel iQ
This year's Daytona 500 is being shown on Fox Sports channel 506 and 506 HD from 6am AEDT. If you have a Foxtel iQ subscription including the Sports HD pack, you are all set.
If not, you need to combine the Sports HD pack ($25/month) with the Foxtel Plus package ($49/month), a total of $74 per month. Foxtel is also the only broadcaster in Australia that currently offers users access to 4K sports content which is a bonus.
You may also find you're up for some installation costs, although Foxtel IQ deals are also regularly available.
Stream the Daytona 500 on Foxtel Now
You can access the famous race through Foxtel's digital streaming service, Foxtel Now. For this you have to subscribe to the Essentials pack and the Sports pack, a total of $54/month.
Watch Daytona 500 on NASCAR Trackpass
NASCAR Trackpass is available to watch via internet browsers or via an app on iOS and Android devices. While there is an iOS app, there's no app available on Apple TV.
While a free trial is offered "periodically" for Trackpass it doesn't disclose how long this lasts. After the free trial you can continue on for either an annual fee of US$125 or pay US$15 per month.
How many laps is the Daytona 500?
The Daytona track is 2.5 miles long (4km) and it requires 200 laps to complete the 500 miles, which equates to just over 800km.
Who will win the 2020 Daytona 500?
NASCAR races are incredibly hard to pick. There are so many variables that can mean a driver can lead almost the entire race and still not take the chequered flag.
But what the heck, we'll give it a shot. We'll opt for former NASCAR Cup series champion and Team Penske Ford driver Brad Keselowski - starting one place ahead of Hemlin in 24th on the grid - to finally win his first Daytona 500.
