DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- It's here.

Daytona 500 weekend has arrived, and the 60th annual running of "The Great American Race" will kick off the 2018 NASCAR Cup Series season this Sunday.

With that in mind, here's how you can catch all the action at Daytona International Speedway this weekend.

WHEN IS PRACTICE?

There are three practices this weekend prior to the Daytona 500. All three will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1.

Friday, Feb. 16:

1:05-1:55 p.m. ET: NASCAR Cup Series practice

3:05-3:55 p.m. ET: NASCAR Cup Series practice

Saturday, Feb. 17:

12:05-12:55 p.m. ET: Final NASCAR Cup Series practice

WHEN IS THE RACE?

The Daytona 500 is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 18. It will be broadcast on FOX.

WHAT TIME IS THE GREEN FLAG?

The green flag for the Daytona 500 will wave at approximately 3:05 p.m. ET after the pre-race ceremonies. Among those ceremonies will be the delivery of the most famous words in motor sports -- and Dale Earnhardt Jr. has that honor as the Grand Marshal.

CAN I LISTEN ON THE RADIO?

The Daytona 500 will be available on MRN as well as SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

CAN I WATCH ONLINE?

WHAT CHANNEL IS FOX SPORTS 1?

It varies, but this link allows fans to find the channel by entering their zip code and selecting their television provider.

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?

Hendrick Motorsports will have two drivers starting inside the top five -- Alex Bowman on the pole and Chase Elliott in fourth -- and two drivers starting at the rear of the field -- Jimmie Johnson and William Byron moved to backup cars.

Speaking of backup cars, the Daytona 500 has been won in a backup car four times in history – most recently by Matt Kenseth in 2009.

When the green flag drops, Hendrick Motorsports will become the first team in NASCAR history to start three drivers under the age of 25 in the Daytona 500: Bowman (24), Elliott (22) and Byron (20).
