Denny Hamlin to Start on Cup Pole at Homestead

Denny Hamlin will hold the helm at the start of Sunday’s (Feb. 28) NASCAR Cup Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Hamlin claimed the pole position after winning stage 2 last week at the Daytona International Speedway road course.

Joey Logano will start next to Hamlin on the front row, while Daytona’s road course victor Christopher Bell slots in third. Kevin Harvick is fourth and Kurt Busch rounds out the top five starters.

Daytona 500 champion Michael McDowell begins in sixth and Brad Keselowski is seventh. Ryan Preece, Martin Truex Jr. and Cole Custer completes the top 10 in the lineup.

The lineup was formed using an equation that combined four weighted categories: driver’s and team owner’s finishing position (25% each) and fastest lap (15%) from the Daytona road course, as well as owner’s points (35%).

Dixie Vodka 400 Starting Lineup

The Dixie Vodka 400 will air on Feb. 28 at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
