Weather hampered the on-track activity for the NASCAR Cup Series Saturday at Richmond Raceway, and as a result, the starting lineup for Sunday's Toyota Owners 400 was set by the NASCAR performance metric.

Alex Bowman, the current NASCAR Cup Series point leader will start from the pole in the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and he will be joined on the front row by Kyle Busch in the No. 8 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet.
