NASCAR lineup at Richmond: Starting order, pole for Federated Auto Parts 400

Kyle Larson has done it again.

The 2021 Cup Series champion has fared better than most in the 2022 season. Larson has nine top-five finishes, the second-highest in the series, behind only Trackhouse Racing’s Ross Chastain.

Larson created a great opportunity to add to that total when he secured pole position for Sunday’s race in Richmond. Larson outpaced Chastain on the final lap of qualifying Saturday to claim his third pole of the 2022 season.

The Federated Auto Parts 400 should be an exciting race. With just three races left in the Cup Series regular season, drivers like Bubba Wallace, Erik Jones and Martin Truex Jr. will be looking to earn a spot in the post-season. They all sit right in front of the field and start the race.
