Starting lineup for Wednesday night’s Cup race at Charlotte

0 Comments

Hendrick Motorsports cars will lead the field to the green flag for Wednesday night’s Cup race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The lineup was set by inverting the top 20 finishers from Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600. Starting positions 21-40 for Wednesday’s race are based on how those drivers finished in Sunday’s event.

William Byron, who finished 20th in the Coke 600, will start on the pole for Wednesday’s race. He’ll be joined on the front row by teammate Alex Bowman, who finished 19th on Sunday after winning two stages and leading a race-high 164 laps.

Jimmie Johnson is listed as last in the 40-car lineup. His second-place finish was nullified when his car failed inspection after the race and he was moved to 40th.
