The NASCAR Xfinity Series will wrap up the circuit’s trip to Kansas this weekend by running the Kansas Lottery 250 Saturday at Kansas Speedway. The race will begin at 5:00 p.m. ET. Kyle Busch was stripped of his victory in last week’s Xfinity race and won’t be competing in either series this time around, so Austin Cindric could continue his ridiculous hot streak unimpeded. Here’s how the starting grid will be set.

NASCAR is not holding traditional qualifying runs to cut down on events and attempt to protect health and safety. The Cup, Xfinity, and Truck Series are using random draws connected to points standings. The Xfinity Series has been using a team points process for determining starting grid. The point totals break down top third, middle third, and bottom third, and then there is a random draw of teams within those thresholds.

Cindric and points leader Chase Briscoe are the favorites to win and both clock in at +250 on DraftKings Sportsbook. Cindric has won three straight races and has climbed to second in the standings. Briscoe still leads all drivers with five wins though and has only dropped outside of the top 10 once this season. Justin Allagaier and Noah Gragson trail the leaders at +700 while pole sitter Michael Annett is a long shot at +6600.

Here is the complete starting grid for the Kansas Lottery 250.
