(UPDATED) Starting lineup for Sunday’s Overton’s 301 NASCAR Cup race at Loudon

1 Comment

Martin Truex Jr. will lead the field to green Sunday afternoon in the NASCAR Cup Series’ Overton’s 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H.

Kyle Larson originally won the pole for what appeared to be the fourth time this season, but his No. 42 Chip Ganassi Chevrolet failed post-qualifying inspection, relegating Larson to the back of the 39-car field as a result.

As a result, Truex, who originally qualified second, will now start from the pole in Sunday’s race. Truex, who won last Saturday at Kentucky Speedway, will be joined on the front row by Jimmie Johnson.

Row 2 will have defending race winner Matt Kenseth and Jamie McMuray. Row 3 will have Kasey Kahne and Erik Jones.

Row 4 will feature Kyle Busch and Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin, while Row 5 will have Kurt Busch and Brad Keselowski.

There are 39 cars qualified for the race, which will be televised at 2:30 p.m. ET on Sunday on NBCSN.
