Truex on pole, Richmond starting lineup

The NASCAR Cup Series remains in Virginia this week moving from the paperclip of Martinville Speedway to the 0.75-mile Richmond Raceway for the Toyota Owners 400.

Back to starting a race on Sunday, a field of 38 cars will take the green at 3 pm ET on FOX. The first of those cars will be the one driven by last weeks winner Martin Truex Jr.

There again is no qualifying resulting in the qualifying formula being used. That formula consits of a drivers finishing position from the previous race (25%), the car owners finishing position (25%), where the team is in points (35%), and the fastest lap of the previous race (15%).
