Drive4COPD 300 Starting Lineup

Thomas Bowles · Friday February 24, 2012

 

Hey everyone! Here on the Frontstretch, we’re dabbling with something new in 2012: giving you live, up-to-date starting lineups and results. So, without further ado here’s the starting lineup for Saturday’s Nationwide Series Race, the Drive4COPD 300 where Danica Patrick starts on the pole. It’s the first time a woman has led the field to the green in a NASCAR touring race since Shawna Robinson won the pole in the then-Busch Series race in Atlanta in 1994.

Cars in PURPLE are outside the top 30 in NASCAR’s owner points
