Justin Haley will lead the Xfinity Series field to green Saturday at Darlington Raceway (12:30 p.m. ET on NBC).
Haley earned the right to pace the Darlington Xfinity starting lineup after his performance in winning last weekend at Daytona.
Four races remain in the Xfinity regular season: Darlington, the Richmond doubleheader (Sept. 11-12) and Bristol (Sept. 18).
The Darlington Xfinity starting lineup is set by using a formula based on four statistical categories: owner points position, owner final race position, the finish and fastest lap from the most recently completed race.
Performance Metrics Qualifying is a total number based on the previous race. The formula is 15% of a fastest lap time position, 25% of the driver’s final race finish position, 25% of the owner’s final race position and 35% of the owner points position. Any ties will be broken by the Rule Book.
