NASCAR Bristol Lineup: Starting Order For Saturday’s Playoff Race

Martin Truex Jr. is on the pole


It’s elimination time in the NASCAR Cup Series.

Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday will play host to the Bass Pro Shops Night Race, which serves as the Round of 16 elimination race.

It’ll be Martin Truex Jr., who won last weekend at Richmond, in the first spot, with Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson rounding out the top five.
