How was this NASCAR Bristol starting lineup determined?
The NASCAR performance metric is a weighted average of four different criteria following the race from the week before.
15% of the average is based on lap time from last week’s race. 25% is based on the driver’s finish last week. 25% is based on where the car finished the week before. And 35% of the average is based on the car owner slot of the car.
