After an action-packed first eleven NASCAR Cup Series races, the championship arrived at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina. Fans are also eagerly awaiting the start of another exciting race this Sunday, May 8, 2022. The Goodyear 400 will be live on FOX and MRN at 3:30 pm ET.

The 12th race of the 2022 NASCAR season will be contested on a 1.366-mile-long track. 36 drivers will compete for over 293 laps on an egg-shaped oval race track.

Just like every other Cup race, the line-up is usually derived from the qualifying race, which in most cases is held one day before the main race.

In this case, single-car qualifying served as the determiner for NASCAR’s Goodyear 400 race. This time around, it has recorded another new pole winner for the twelfth race of the season

Motorsport journalist Bob Pockrass shared the starting line-up for Goodyear 400 on his official Twitter account.

In Saturday’s qualifying race, Team Penske driver Joey Logano won his first pole of the season with a speed of 170.720 mph. It was the 23rd pole of his career and the first since Michigan International Speedway in June 2019. The defending Cup Series champion Kyle Larson will share the front row with Logano.
