The NASCAR Cup Series playoffs continue with the Round of 8 at Kansas Speedway, and Chase Elliott will lead the field to green on Oct. 18.
Elliott earned the Busch Pole Award after winning last week’s event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL.
Team Penske’s Joey Logano starts second alongside the Hendrick Motorsports driver. Kurt Busch will start his No. 1 Chevrolet of Chip Ganassi Racing in third. Stewart-Haas Racing’s Kevin Harvick begins fourth and Joe Gibbs Racing’s Martin Truex Jr. rounds out the top five.
Four statistical categories were used to create the lineup: Rank in owner points (weighted 35%), driver’s finishing position (25%), team owner’s finishing position (25%) and fastest lap from previous race (15%).
The Hollywood Casino 400 airs on Sunday, Oct. 18 at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC and MRN radio.
