DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The field for the 75-lap Sprint Unlimited at Daytona International Speedway is now set thanks to the help from select fans who assisted the crew chiefs in the starting lineup drawing held on Friday afternoon.

This year’s field will feature 25 drivers with Paul Menard and Kasey Kahne bringing the field down to the green flag to start the 2015 season. Those who were eligible to compete in the non-points season opener include former Sprint Unlimited winners, last year’s Coors Light pole winners and Chase contenders, as well as former Daytona 500 pole winners.

However, Brian Scott, David Gilliland, Brian Vickers and AJ Allmendinger didn’t field an entry, so due to points, Clint Bowyer, Paul Menard, Casey Mears and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will compete in this year’s edition of the Sprint Unlimited.

Coverage for the Sprint Unlimited will air live on FOX and the Motor Racing Network (MRN) at 8:00 p.m. ET Saturday night.
