Kevin Harvick won the Busch Poll Award for the Autotrader Ecopark Automotive 500 on Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway (3:30 pm ET, PRN and SeriousXM NASCAR Radio) on the NBCSN / NBC Sports App, the second round of 8 races in the NASCAR Cup Series Series Hosted playoffs.

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

Harvick’s No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford will share the front row with Penske Ford, the No. 22 team from Joey Logano, who finished second in performance metric calculations. Logano won last Sunday at the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway by locking in one place for Championship 4, while Harvick finished second.

In most events of the national series since NASCAR’s May return, 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.
