NASCAR Charlotte lineup: starting order, pole for Sunday’s race with qualifying

NASCAR conducted qualifying for the fourth time this season on Saturday as the drivers each turned one lap around the 1.5-mile Charlotte Motor Speedway to establish the starting lineup for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 (6 p.m. ET; Fox, TSN , PRN).

Qualifying on the track is a rarity this season as NASCAR tries to limit the amount of time teams spend on the track amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Only eight races in total are scheduled for practice and qualifying in 2021; Charlotte was No. 4, joining Daytona (for the Daytona 500), the Bristol dirt track and the Circuit of the Americas.

The remaining sessions will be for the new calendar tracks (Nashville, Road America and the Indianapolis Speedway) and the season-ending Championship 4 race in Phoenix.

Below is the starting lineup, which was established with qualifying, for Sunday’s NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Who won pole for the NASCAR race at Charlotte?

Kyle Larson made the fastest lap in qualifying, beating Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Chase Elliott. Larson knocked Elliott out of first place with his career.

He completed his lap in 29.953 seconds for a speed of 180.282 mph. However, he was not convinced that his car was that fast as he drove it down the track.

“I felt really balanced, so a lot of times, if that’s the case, you think it might be slow,” he told FS1’s Vince Welch.

Austin Dillon, who led practice Friday, qualified sixth.
