The Daytona 500 is the biggest race on the NASCAR calendar and the first of the 2022 season. It’s also one of the great sporting events the world over, and after last year’s jaw-dropping final-lap dramatics, the 2022 edition has a lot to live up to. Joey Logano is among the favorites for glory – as long as he avoids any unwanted attention. The Great American Race is about to begin, so read on to find out how to watch a 2022 Daytona 500 live stream from anywhere in the world.
If you didn’t catch last year’s action, boy did you miss out. Brad Keselowski clipped the back of race leader (and then-teammate) Logano on the final lap, causing both of them to crash out of the race and gifting arguably the least likely Daytona 500 victory of all time to Michael McDowell.
Only a fool would look past three-time Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin, while there’ll be plenty of focus on a particularly eye-catching outsider, former F1 world champion Jacques Villeneuve.
The 2022 edition of the race also marks the Daytona 500 debut of the Next Gen car, which the drivers are still getting to grips with. Whether you’re a die-hard NASCAR fan or just here for the spectacle, find out how to watch this year’s race with our guide to getting a Daytona 500 live stream from anywhere in the world.
