Brad Keselowski will start on the pole for Sunday’s Cup race at Kansas Speedway (3 p.m. ET on FS1).
Keselowski is coming off his victory last weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.
Keselowski will be joined on the front row by William Byron, who is going for his ninth consecutive top-10 finish — something no Hendrick Motorsports driver has done since Jimmie Johnson accomplished the feat in 2010.
WHERE EVERYONE IS STARTING: Kansas Cup starting lineup
The Kansas Cup starting lineup is set by using a formula based on four statistical categories: owner points position, owner final race position, and the finish and fastest lap from the most recently completed race.
Performance Metrics Qualifying is a formula 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.
