NASCAR Sonoma lineup: starting order, pole for Sunday’s race without qualifying



The starting lineup for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway was established by applying the statistical formula that NASCAR is using for the majority of series races in 2021.

NASCAR returned to the formula after maintaining qualification the previous two weekends at the Circuit of the Americas and Charlotte.

Drivers’ starting positions for Toyota / Save Mart 350 (4 p.m. ET; FS1, TSN, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) were based on four factors:

  • Final position of the driver from the previous race (25 percent)
  • Final position of car owner from previous race (25 percent)
  • Team Owner’s Point Rating (35 percent)
  • Fastest lap of the previous race (15 percent)

NASCAR is conducting qualifying and practice for just eight Cup Series races in the 2021 season. The remaining sessions will take place at Nashville, Road America, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Phoenix. The first three tracks are new to the NASCAR schedule, and Phoenix is ​​the site of the season-ending Championship 4 race.

Below is the starting lineup, which was established without qualifying, for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at the 2.52-mile Sonoma Raceway circuit.
