The NASCAR Cup Series’ Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 is set run this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. It will begin at 3:00 p.m. and will be aired on NBCS. Here’s how the starting order will be decided.

The starting grid for the Super Start Batteries 400 is determined by random draws that account for where each driver stands in the points race. Here’s how the starting order for Thursday’s race will be determined.

  • Positions 1-12: Random draw from charter teams in those positions in owner points
  • Positions 13-24: Random draw from charter teams in those positions in owner points
  • Positions 25-36: Random draw from charter teams in those positions in owner points
  • Positions 37-40: Open, non-chartered teams in order of owners points

Kevin Harvick is the favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook once again at +400. The points leader has four wins at New Hampshire extended his streak of top five finishes to seven races last week. Hamlin (+450) secured his fifth win of the season at the Super Start Batteries 400 last Thursday and has the second best odds in the field. He hasn’t been as consistent as Harvick lately, but does have three wins at New Hampshire.

Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. both clock in at +750 and have the third best odds. Busch is still looking for his first win of the season but has three career victories at New Hampshire. Truex has never won at New Hampshire but has cracked the top five in three of his last four races there.

Here’s how the starting order for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 looks.
