NASCAR’s Xfinity Series is back Monday evening at Bristol Motor Speedway with the Cheddar’s 300. The race was originally scheduled for Saturday afternoon, but a rain delay in Charlotte this past week pushed it to Monday. The race will run at 7 p.m. ET on Monday, June 1st, and will be broadcast on FS1.
NASCAR is not holding traditional qualifying through the Talladega races June 20th and 21st. To cut down on events and attempt to protect health and safety, all three series are using random draws connected to points standings. The Xfinity Series is using the following process for determining the starting grid for the Cheddar’s 300 on Monday:
- Positions 1-12: The first 12 NXS Teams based on the Adverse Conditions Line Up Eligibility will be assigned starting positions 1st – 12th using a random draw.
- Positions 13-24: The next 12 NXS Teams based on the Adverse Conditions Line Up eligibility will be assigned starting positions 12th- 24th using a random draw.
- Starting positions 25-36: The next 12 NXS Teams based on the Adverse Conditions Line Up eligibility will be assigned starting positions 25th -36th using a random draw.
- Any vehicles that are eligible for the Event in positions 37th – 40th will be assigned starting positions based on their order of eligibility.
The draw resulted in Harrison Burton grabbing the pole, followed by Brandon Jones, Austin Cindric, and Justin Haley rounding out the first two rows. Chase Briscoe is the favorite in this race at +250, followed by Justin Allgaier (+400), and Ross Chastain (+500). There’s a dip from there, with Burton and Noah Gragson installed at +1000.
