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.
