Austin Cindric will start on the pole for Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval (3 p.m. ET, NBC).
The Charlotte Roval Xfinity 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.
