How did NASCAR set the starting order for Wednesday’s race at Charlotte?

On Sunday, they ran a qualifying session. That’s the only qualifying session scheduled for this entire month.

For tonight, the field has been inverted. The order is based on results from Sunday.

-Positions 1-20: The top 20 finishers from Sunday have been inverted for tonight’s event.

-Positions 21-40: The bottom 20 finishers will start from their finishing position in Sunday’s event (no invert). Per the rules, any new entries would move to the back.

Sunday’s race winner will roll off from the 20th position. William Byron and Alex Bowman set the front row for tonight’s event.
