The starting lineup and pole for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway were set by the procedure that has determined the starting order for almost all Cup Series races in 2020 that have run without prior qualifying sessions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The starting grid for Sunday’s race at New Hampshire, scheduled to start at 3 p.

m. ET and broadcast live on NBCSN, features a Ford, a Toyota and a Chevy in the first three spots as a result of the procedure that utilizes a combination of points standings and a random draw to set the lineup.

As for pit stall selection for the NASCAR Cup Series races being run without qualifying, it is ordered based on finishing positions from the series’ previous points race, followed by new entries in order of points. That means Denny Hamlin, the winner of last week’s race at Kansas, will have the first stall at New Hampshire. 

Below is the starting lineup for Sunday’s NASCAR race at New Hampshire and how it was set.

Who won the pole for the NASCAR race at New Hampshire?

For the third time this season, Aric Almirola will start a race on the pole after he was given the top spot for Sunday’s event at New Hampshire based on Thursday’s random draw.

Denny Hamlin, one of the favorites to win Sunday’s race at New Hampshire, will join Almirola on the front row. The pair will roll off in front of Chase Elliott and Brad Keselowski in third and fourth, respectively.

Below is the protocol for how the Cup Series field was set at New Hampshire:

Positions 1-12: Random draw from charter teams in those positions in owner points
Positions 13-24: Random draw from charter teams in those positions in owner points
Positions 25-36: Random draw from charter teams in those positions in owner points
Positions 37-40: Open teams in order of owners points

NASCAR starting lineup at New Hampshire

The same protocol that set the lineup for Sunday’s New Hampshire race will be used for all NASCAR Cup Series races for the rest of the 2020 regular season.

“The current format has worked well in addressing several challenges during our return to racing,” NASCAR senior vice president of competition Scott Miller said. “Most importantly, we have seen competitive racing week-to-week. NASCAR will adjust the starting lineup draw procedure for the playoff races and will announce the new process at a later date.”

A Texas mother-of-three was reportedly found dead over the weekend after her ex-husband allegedly shoved her into an SUV.

Melissa Banda, 37, was allegedly kidnapped Thursday by Richard Ford, 40, and her body was found in a rural area of Hidalgo County one day later, KRGV reported.

Banda “coached her daughters’ soccer team, worked full time, and was always willing to help out those less fortunate,” the page said.
