For only the second time in its 65-year history, the Daytona 500 has been postponed from its traditional Sunday slot to the Monday. Thankfully, it looks as though the hideous weather that has dogged the weekend's action has now cleared, and we should have a clear race when the lights go out at 4 p.m. local time in Florida on Monday, February 19. Let's do this... again! You can watch Daytona 500 live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

Just three short months after Ryan Blaney lifted the Bill France Cup for the first time, the NASCAR Cup Series is back — and it all starts with the Great American Race.

While this season's F1 cars are only just being unveiled, the stock car racing is in Florida for 500 miles around the Daytona International Speedway to get the 2024 season underway. And for the first time in his career, 2015 winner Joey Logano has driven to a pole position start for Team Penske. He's joined by 2021 race winner Michael McDowell on the front row of the grid, with the two veterans giving themselves the best chance possible to get out ahead of the rest.

Having sealed the Cup Series win at the Phoenix Raceway in November, Blaney will want to add another first to his resume — race winner at the Daytona 500. Twice a runner-up in 2017 and 2020, he'll be eager to improve on the eighth place finish of last year and get his campaign for back-to-back championships off to the best start possible. Although he'll have to do so from way back at position 32 on the grid.

Last year's surprise winner Ricky Stenhouse Jr. took full advantage of a multi-car pile-up to drive to victory. With the JTG Daugherty racer unlikely to repeat the feat — especially after a dismal qualifying round that sees him start 35th — Blaney's main competition will come from the likes of Chris Buescher, William Byron, Chase Elliott and pole position holder Logano. Three-time victor Denny Hamlin will also be hoping for another successful run at the Daytona International Speedway.

If you've cut the cord, our recommendation to watch the game is Sling TV or Fubo. They're two of the best streaming services for live TV.

The Sling Blue package starts at just $40/month and comes with Fox and over 30 other channels. Fubo, meanwhile, costs $80/month for 100+ channels, including Fox, all the broadcast networks, ESPN and more.

How to watch Daytona 500 wherever you are

Daytona 500 live streams will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.


Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 105 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select 'United States' from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to your domestic streaming service and watch the race as if you were back at home.
