Following closely behind in eighth is Alex Bowman. William Byron will start in 16th and Jimmie Johnson will round out the Hendrick Motorsports drivers in 20th.

The starting lineup was set through a drawing based on the drivers' current Cup Series standings that include all the completed races so far this season.

Aric Almirola drew the pole position.

The race at New Hampshire Speedway will be Sunday, Aug. 2 at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN, PRN Radio and SiriusXM.
