Brad Keselowski Starts on Pole in Cup Race at Kansas

Brad Keselowski will take the NASCAR Cup Series field to the green flag at Kansas Speedway Sunday, May 2.

The No. 2 Team Penske pilot claimed the pole after conquering Talladega Superspeedway last week.

Hendrick Motorsports’ William Byron lines up next to Keselowski on the front row. Daytona 500 champion Michael McDowell starts third and Stewart-Haas Racing’s Kevin Harvick is fourth. Matt DiBenedetto rounds out the top five starters.

Austin Dillon wheels his No. 3 car of Richard Childress Racing from sixth place, while Keselowski’s Penske teammate Ryan Blaney begins seventh. Joe Gibbs Racing cohorts Christopher Bell and Kyle Busch start eighth and ninth, respectively, and Cole Custer completes the top 10 in the lineup.

The lineup was set by an equation that combines four weighted categories: driver’s and car owner’s finishing position from previous race (25% each), fastest lap from previous race (15%) and team owner points ranking (35%).

Cup Lineup for Kansas

The Buschy McBusch Race 400 airs on May 2 at 3 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1.
