Bristol Truck starting lineup

0 Comments

Grant Enfinger will lead the Bristol Truck starting lineup to the green flag Thursday night. The race is the playoff opener for the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.

Enfinger is coming off a victory last weekend at Richmond.

He’ll be joined on the front row by Brett Moffitt. Ben Rhodes will start third and be followed by reigning series champion Matt Crafton and Austin Hill.

The No. 49 of Ray Ciccarelli and the No. 83 of Tim Viens have been withdrawn from the event.

The Bristol Truck 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.
