NASCAR Richmond 2013: Lineup, starting grid for Toyota Owners 400

Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Kenseth responded to penalties for a failed post-race inspection by winning the pole at the Toyota Owners 400 and will try to turn that into a race victory Saturday night.

Matt Kenseth will try and turn around a rough week with a win at the Toyota Owners 400, as he sits on the pole for the second time in as many weeks despite suffering huge penalties for using an incorrect engine part.

Kenseth is in pole position for the second-straight week after starting and finishing in first at last week's STP 400. Kenseth's week has been marred by failing a post-race inspection, costing him points in the Cup race and costing him his spot in next season's Sprint Unlimited race, reserved for pole winners from the previous year. But Kenseth regained that spot by earning the pole for a second-straight week, despite a reputation as a poor qualifier. The last three races in this year's Sprint Cup have been won by the driver in the pole position, so getting the top spot has been beneficial as of late.

Kenseth-teammate Kyle Busch has won the last four Toyota Owners 400 races and starts in eighth.
