Busch, the Cup Series points leader and victor of three races already this season, is still the only Cup Series driver who has finished in the top 10 in each race this season.

Hamlin's No. 11 Toyota would be one of many cars that would fail pre-race inspection.

XFINITY SERIES: Cole Custer passed Austin Cindric with 20 laps to go at Richmond Raceway and earned his second victory of the season.

Kyle Busch leads all active drivers with his six career wins at Richmond.

The race was especially hard on Christopher Bell, who was running near the front in search of his second consecutive victory when he spun, bringing out a caution 10 laps before the end of the second stage.

Kevin Harvick won the pole for tonight's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond Raceway.

"It was really just more congestion", Harvick said. It's the fifth stage victory of the season for Busch, who is trying for his third straight victory on the 0.75-mile, D-shaped oval.

Christopher Bell drives into turn one during the NASCAR Xfinity Series auto race at Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, Va., Friday, April 12, 2019.

The race is being run under mostly clear skies after rain fell all morning.

NASCAR chose to have a competition caution 40 laps into the race after rain that fell early in the day cleaned rubber off the track.

Erik Jones will start on the outside of the front row, with Kurt Busch and Joey Logano in the second row.

Further, with a victory from one of its four drivers Saturday night, Joe Gibbs Racing would tie Petty Enterprises for the most organizational Cup Series wins (15) at Richmond. And the inspection heavily impacted the starting grid with eight of the 37 cars failing inspection at least once. They include local favorite Denny Hamlin, a three-time victor on the 0.75-mile oval, Chase Elliott and Matt Tifft. As a result, his qualifying times were disallowed, moving him to the back.

Five other teams failed inspection and had their qualifying speeds and pit selection disallowed.

Martin Truex Jr., Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon, Daniel Suarez and Jimmie Johnson completed the first 10 qualifiers.
