Denny Hamlin will lead the field to the green flag this Sunday at the NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.

With several days to go until the green flag is waved for the 500-mile race at Talladega, the starting grid of the race has been revealed. Richmond’s runner-up Denny Hamlin will start the race from the pole position. Joey Logano, who finished 3rd last Sunday, will follow him on the front row.

Martin Truex Jr., William Byron, and Richmond race winner Alex Bowman complete the starting top 5.

JJ Yeley is listed in the no.15 Rick Ware Racing car after Jennifer Jo Cobb has been disapproved to make her Cup Series debut by NASCAR.
