Qualifying results, starting lineup for AAA Drive for Autism 400 at Dover Tom Jensen @tomjensen100 Jun 2, 2017 at 5:00p ET The field has been set for Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway, with Kyle Busch on the pole in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. Here’s where every driver will line up for the 13th of 26 races in the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. 1 Kyle Busch The best of the Joe Gibbs Racing drivers so far this year, Busch will be looking to return the team to victory lane for the first time in 2017. 2 Martin Truex Jr. A two-time Dover winner, Truex was fast in practice and will be one of the favorites to win on Sunday. 3 Daniel Suarez Although just a rookie with Joe Gibbs Racing, Suarez continues to show excellent promise. 4 Matt Kenseth The defending race winner, Kenseth has three victories here and is always a threat to win at Dover. 5 Kyle Larson A crash in the Coca-Cola 600 knocked Larson out of the points lead, but he was fastest in practice on Friday. 6 Kurt Busch The elder Busch has one Dover victory, that coming in 2011, when he drove for Roger Penske. In fact, it was his final victory for Team Penske. 7 Erik Jones Last weekend at Charlotte, Jones qualified fifth and finished seventh, both personal bests in a Cup race. 8 Brad Keselowski The numbers are solid for the 2012 champ at Dover: One victory, five top fives, six top 10s and an average finish of 12.143. 9 Austin Dillon Fresh off his historic victory in the Coca-Cola 600, Dillon will be looking to build on his success again this weekend. 10 Denny Hamlin His season slowly picks up some speed, Hamlin has led laps in six of the last eight points races. 11 Dale Earnhardt Jr. After a top 10 at Charlotte, Earnhardt was racy in practice at Dover, too. 12 Ricky Stenhouse Jr. The surprise Talladega winner, Stenhouse has a best finish of eighth here at Dover. 13 Ryan Newman In 2003 and ’04, Newman won three out of four Dover races, leading 502 laps in he process. But his last top five run here was in 2007. 14 Jimmie Johnson With 10 victories at the Monster Mile, Johnson has won three more races here than his next closest competition, NASCAR Hall of Famers Richard Petty and Bobby Allison. 15 Ryan Blaney After an excellent fourth-place finish at Kansas, Blaney lost an axle in the Coca-Cola 600, where he finished 24th. 16 Chase Elliott In his rookie season of 2016, Elliott finished third in both Dover races. He needs a good finish this weekend. 17 Trevor Bayne Believe it or not, Bayne has only made four starts at the Monster Mile. 18 Kevin Harvick In 2015, Harvick needed to win here to advance in the playoffs and he did just that, leading 355 of 400 laps. But his qualifying effort was a disappointment. 19 Jamie McMurray Historically, this has not been a great track for McMurray, who has just two top fives in 28 races here. 20 Kasey Kahne Three times in the last four Dover races, Kahne has finished sixth or better. He’ll start mid-pack. 21 Ty Dillon Now that big brother Austin Dillon has a race victory, the pressure in on Ty to get his first. 22 Clint Bowyer Looking for his first victory since Charlotte in October 2012, Bowyer is aiming to win again. 23 Paul Menard So far this season, Menard is the only full-time Richard Childress Racing Cup driver who hasn’t won a race. 24 AJ Allmendinger The last time Allmendinger finished in the top 10 at Dover was in 2011. 25 Matt DiBenedetto DiBenedetto has been unable to score a top-25 finish at Dover. We’ll see if he can do it on Sunday. 26 Joey Logano Although he is winless so far at Dover, Logano does have three top fives and 10 top 10s in 16 starts here. Still, this is not where he wanted to start. 27 Landon Cassill Last year in this race Cassill finished 19th, which was his best result at this track. 28 Michael McDowell In the last two races, McDowell has scored consecutive top 20s, good performances for a small team. 29 Chris Buescher This will be just Buescher’s third start at Dover, where he has best result of 18th. 30 Regan Smith For the third race in a row, Smith is subbing for the injured Aric Almirola in the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford. 31 Danica Patrick It’s been a season of struggle for Patrick, who is 32nd in points and looking beat here career-best Dover finish of 13th. 32 Gray Gaulding One of several rookies in the field, Gaulding will be making his first Monster Mile start. © Barry Cantrell/LAT Images www.latphoto.co.uk Barry Cantrell 33 David Ragan In 21 Dover starts, Ragan’s best finish is 13th. He’ll be challenged to beat that his weekend, especially starting so deep in the field. 34 Ryan Sieg Sieg is making his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut this weekend. 35 Cole Whitt In six previous Dover Cup starts, Whitt’s best finish has been 26th and his average finish here is 27.500. 36 Ross Chastain Like Ryan Seig, Chastain has never started a Cup race before. 37 Timmy Hill Hill went out early, as did Cody Ware, but both were slow. 38 Cody Ware This weekend marks Ware’s first start at the Monster Mile. 39 Jeffrey Earnhardt Congrats to Earnhardt and car owner Joe Faulk for landing Hulu as a sponsor.
