NASCAR starting lineup at The Clash: Paul Menard starts on pole, Kyle Busch second
The lineup is set for the first competitive race of the 2019 season.
There was no official qualifying, so a draw determined the starting lineup for the Advance Auto Parts Clash.
After the draw, Paul Menard will start on the pole while Kyle Busch will be second.
This is a quick 75-lap race which will be split up into two portions, the first of which will be a 25-lap stage and the final a 50-lap race to the finish.
Winner takes home a cash prize.
Kevin Harvick (sixth) and Denny Hamlin (17th) are the active leaders for wins at The Clash with three apiece.
