Starting lineup, TV schedule for Sunday’s race

Kevin Harvick’s win at Michigan pushed the number of winning drivers in the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season to 15, leaving one wild card spot available with three regular season races left.

First, the short track in Richmond, where Denny Hamlin outlasted Harvick as the two rocketed through the field on new tires during the final run. The favorite for Sunday’s race, according to BetMGM, is Martin Truex Jr., who was the driver pushed outside the playoff picture with Harvick’s win.

Truex Jr. trails Ryan Blaney by 19 points in the regular season standings for the final wild card spot. Blaney is 2nd in regular season points, and Truex is 4th. But neither have a win, and either one can clinch a playoff berth with a win over the next three weekends.

It’s going to be a fun August.
