Brad Keselowski won the Busch Pole Award for Xinsinity on Sunday at the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs for the Round of 8 Elimination Race at MartinsvilleSpeedway (2pm ET on NBC / NBC Sports App, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

The lineup was determined using NASCAR’s competition-based formula, which is the total number based on the previous event in the series: 15% of the fastest lap time position, 25% of the driver’s final race end position, the owner’s. 25% of the final race marks the position and 35% of the owner’s position.

Inducting Keslowski and No. 2 team Penske into Front Row will be Martin Truex Jr. at No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota.

In most national series events since NASCAR’s May comeback, lineups have been started by random draws. This structure, which was first launched in August, draws on performance from both individual races and season-long results, rather than leaving a limit on starting chance.
