NASCAR is back with Cup Series qualifying at Richmond Raceway on Saturday. Qualifying for Sunday’s Federated Auto Parts 400 begins at 5:50 p.m. ET and will air on USA Network and via live stream at NBCSports.com/live.
Qualifying gets going after the drivers get a practice run on the track. The field will be divided into two groups. Each driver will get two laps of single-car racing, and the five fastest from each group will advance to the second round. The ten drivers that advance will run two more laps, with the fastest driver claiming the pole position.
This marks the second Cup Series race of the year at Richmond Raceway. In April, Ryan Blaney claimed pole position for the Toyota Owners 400, and Denny Hamlin won the race. Last September, Kyle Larson was awarded the pole at the Federated Auto Parts 400 by a competition-based formula, and Martin Truex, Jr. won the race. This year, Truex and Hamlin are the favorites to win the race at DraftKings Sportsbook with +600 odds.
