Daytona 500 live stream 2024: how to watch NASCAR online and on TV from anywhere

Ricky Stenhouse Jr., driver of the #47 Kroger/Cottonelle Chevrolet, and Joey Logano, driver of the #22 Shell Pennzoil Ford, race to the checkered flag under caution at the NASCAR Cup Series 65th Annual Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway .

How to watch Daytona 500

Looking for a Daytona 500 live stream? We've got you covered. Today's race is FREE to watch in Australia. NASCAR fans in the US can watch on Fox (via Sling TV or FuboTV), while viewers in Canada can tune in through TSN. It's on Sky in the UK. Abroad? Simply use a VPN to watch any Daytona 500 live stream – from anywhere in the world.

Daytona 500 preview

We've all had to be patient, but after rain forced the postponement of the 66th Daytona 500, reigning champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will belatedly defend his title today at the Daytona International Speedway.

NASCAR Cup Series champion Ryan Blaney is the pre-race favourite, though he’s never quite managed to get over the line at Daytona, finishing runner-up twice and coming close on numerous occasions. 

Just as F1 is the zenith of single-seater racing, Daytona 500 the pinnacle of stock car racing, and it’s hardly surprising when the prize pot is $28 million – the single biggest purse in motorsport.

In-form drivers Kyle Larson, William Byron, Chase Elliot, Christopher Bell are all desperately vying for the chance to win the prestigious title, as are Martin Truex Jr and Denny Hamlin, the oldest heads in the field, with both turning 44 this year. 

Although Hamlin is a three-time winner, time is running out for Truex as he seeks a maiden Daytona victory at his 20th attempt.

The 2024 Daytona 500 starts at 4pm ET / 1pm PT / 9pm GMT / 8am AEDT today, Monday, 19th February. Read on as we explain how to watch a 2024 Daytona 500 live stream from anywhere in the world. 

USA: Watch Daytona 500 live stream

NASCAR fans in the US can watch a Daytona 500 live stream on Fox, which can be accessed through cable cutting services Sling and FuboTV

Sling currently is offering new customers 50 percent off their first month and there's a free trial of FuboTV too. There are no long contracts with either service. If you're not happy with them, you can cancel them at any time.

Of course, Sling and FuboTV are only available within the States so be sure to use a VPN if you're a US subscriber stuck abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN, as it's reliable and comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.

Watch Daytona 500 from anywhere

You won't be able to watch your regular Daytona 500 live stream while travelling abroad. The streaming service will spot that you're in a foreign country and block you. You can use a VPN (virtual private network) to get around this, though.

It's a straightforward piece of software that sets your device to appear as if it's in the right country, allowing you to watch any Daytona 500 live stream from anywhere in the world.

We rate ExpressVPN as the best VPN we've tested. It offers a 30-day guarantee for all your money back if you're not happy with the service.

How to use a VPN for the Daytona 500

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the Daytona 500, you may wish to choose 'Australia' for Kayo Sports.

3. Then head over to Kayo on your browser or device and enjoy the Daytona 500 live stream!
