Bud Shootout 2012: Lineup (Revised)

Four drivers in tonight's Bud Shootout field had to pull out their backup cars following Friday's practice crash at Daytona International Speedway, and NASCAR decided they'll have to start in the back of the pack as a result.

That means Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski will lose their top-three starting spots, with Kurt Busch (formerly sixth) AJ Allmendinger (ninth) joining them in the rear of the field.

The Bud Shootout lineup was set by a draw last night, and Kyle Busch drew the No. 2 spot (Martin Truex Jr. got the pole). Keselowski was third.

NASCAR considered letting the four drivers maintain their starting positions – which would go against the typical weekend procedure – but ultimately decided that because none of the backup cars had been on track, it could be a safety issue.

The race begins at 8:29 p.m. Eastern and will be televised on FOX.

Here's how the Bud Shootout starting lineup will shape up tonight when the green flag flies (this is unofficial since the statistics don't account for cars dropping to the back):

  1. Martin Truex Jr.
  2. Jamie McMurray
  3. David Ragan
  4. Greg Biffle
  5. Dale Earnhardt Jr.
  6. Joey Logano
  7. Carl Edwards
  8. Jeff Burton
  9. Ryan Newman
  10. Jeff Gordon
  11. Tony Stewart
  12. Denny Hamlin
  13. Clint Bowyer
  14. Jimmie Johnson
  15. Kasey Kahne
  16. Michael Waltrip
  17. Marcos Ambrose
  18. Kevin Harvick
  19. Matt Kenseth
  20. Paul Menard
  21. Juan Pablo Montoya
  22. Kyle Busch
  23. Brad Keselowski
  24. Kurt Busch
  25. AJ Allmendinger
