NASCAR lineup in Dover: starting order without qualifying for Sunday’s race pole
The starting lineup for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway was set by applying the statistical formula used for most NASCAR 2021 series races.
The starting positions of drivers on the Drydene 400 (14.00 ET; FS1, TSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) were based on four factors:
- Last driver’s position in the previous race (25 percent)
- Last position of car owner in the previous race (25 percent)
- Group owner points ranking (35 percent)
- Fastest lap of the previous race (15 percent)
The NASCAR 2021 Season Cup Series is qualifying and training for eight races. The next qualifying session will take place before the May 23 event at the American Circuit on the Austin (Texas) highway route.
Next, the starting lineup was set for the NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday in the 1-mile oval at Dover.
