How the field is set for the Daytona 500

• Sunday's two-lap qualifying determined the first two spots, pole-sitter Danica Patrick and Jeff Gordon. Patrick and Gordon will compete today, but if they crash and have to use a backup car Sunday, they would move back in the field.

• Grid spots 3-32 are determined by two 150-mile qualifiers. The top 15 in each qualifying race make the field, as does the 16th-place driver if a driver who is already qualified finishes in the top 15 of their duel.

• Spots 33-36 are set by the four fastest remaining qualifying speeds.

• Spots 37-42 are for the highest ranking cars in 2012 owners' points not yet qualified.

• The 43rd, and final, spot could go to a former Cup series champ who doesn't get in any other way. If all previous champions race their way in or qualify on speed, the final spot goes to the highest ranking car in 2012 owners' points not yet qualified.
