The starting lineups for qualifying races of the NASCAR Cup Series race weekend at Bristol dirt have been announced.

The NASCAR Cup Series will race on dirt for the first time in 51 years, so the race weekend format is a bit different this time around. Instead of a usual qualifying, 4 15-lap qualifying races will take place at the dirt track at Bristol Motor Speedway to determine the starting grid of the main event race the following day.

The lineups of each race have been unveiled this Thursday. The positions have been determined by a virtue of random draw. The grids are as follows:
