The Daytona 500 has more cars than available spots. Here is a list of all entries.

The closer the Daytona 500 gets, the more obsessed race fans want to know about the field that will take the green flag. With just 40 spots available and only 36 guaranteed to make the Daytona 500, eight drivers will try to secure one of the remaining four. There were nine, but it appears NY Racing Team has fallen by the wayside, according to a report at Sportskeeda.

One of the fascinating factors about teams trying to qualify for the Daytona 500 is the cars they will use in their attempts. Seven will use car models from previous years in this year's Daytona 500 – three from 2020 (Motorsports Business Management No. 13, Rick Ware Racing No. 15, and Live Fast Motorsports No. 78), three from 2019 (Petty Ware No. 51, and Rick Ware Nos. 52 and 53 entries), and one from 2018 (Motorsports Business Management).
