Ryan Preece Starting from Pole in Toyota 500k

Ryan Preece will start from the pole in Wednesday’s (May 20) Toyota 500k at Darlington Raceway.

The starting lineup is based on where drivers finished in Sunday’s The Real Heroes 400. Positions 1-20 were inverted while those 21-40 will start where they ended the race. This put 20th-place finisher Preece alongside Ty Dillon, who finished 19th.

Team Penske’s Joey Logano and Stewart-Haas Racing’s Clint Bowyer will lineup in the second row.

Logano’s teammate Ryan Blaney starts fifth, while Roush Fenway Racing’s Ryan Newman begins sixth.

The No. 21 driver for Wood Brothers Racing, Matt DiBenedetto, begins seventh. Brad Keselowski, who led 80 laps on Sunday, will lineup in the eighth position.

Bowyer’s cohort, Aric Almirola, and Richard Childress Racing’s Austin Dillon complete the top 10 starters.

Sunday’s victor, Kevin Harvick, will begin 20th.


The Toyota 500k is set to begin Wednesday, May 20 at 7:30 p.m. ET. Television coverage will be provided by Fox Sports 1.
