Joey Logano and William Byron won the qualifying races Thursday night that set the field for the Daytona 500.

Logano's victory in the first 125-mile race earned him a spot in the second row for the season-opening "Great American Race." Byron had already earned the second starting position in time trials at Daytona International Speedway. He'll start alongside pole-sitter Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Five drivers were racing Thursday night for two slots in the Daytona 500, and they went to Reed Sorenson and Timmy Hill. Sorenson was aided in the first race when Daniel Suarez was crashed by Ryan Blaney.
