The lineup is set for the first competitive race of the 2019 NASCAR Cup Series season.
There was no official qualifying, so a draw Saturday determined the starting lineup for Sunday's Advance Auto Parts Clash. Paul Menard will start on the pole while Kyle Busch will be second.
This is a quick 75-lap race that will be split up into two portions, a 25-lap stage and then a final 50-lap race to the finish.
