Now that the Gatorade Duels have been completed, the starting lineup for the 2011 Daytona 500 is finally set.

Though Dale Earnhardt Jr. is technically the pole-sitter, he will drop to the back during the Daytona 500 pace laps because he wrecked his car in practice. Jeff Gordon sustained damage in his Duel race, but won’t require a backup and will start second for the 500.

Kurt Busch, who won the first Gatorade Duel, will technically be the third starter but will move up to No. 1 when Earnhardt Jr. drops to the back. Duel No. 2 winner Jeff Burton will start fourth.

Regan Smith, Clint Bowyer, Kevin Harvick, Michael Waltrip, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch round out the top 10.
