The NASCAR circuit hits Richmond for a busy weekend of action as the Nationwide Series season winds down. With just a handful of races remaining, time is running short for drivers to make a move and catch Sam Hornish Jr. atop the standings. Prior to Friday night's race, the starting lineup has been set.

In the pole position will be Brian Scott driving the No. 2 Shore Lodge Chevrolet after qualifying in 21.717 seconds, reaching just upwards of 124 mph. Next to Scott in the front row will be Matt Kenseth. In the second row in the third and fourth spots, respectively, will be Austin Dillon and Brad Keselowski

Hornish, who currently holds a 10-point edge on Dillon atop the standings, will start in the fifth position alongside Alex Bowman. A full look at the starting positions can be found here.
