Team Penske finally was stopped from starting on the front row. For the first time this season the front row of the starting grid isn’t going to feature Joey Logano or Brad Keselowski. Kyle Busch who won last week is going to be looking to win back-to-back races and he will do so by taking the green flag from the pole position. Denny Hamlin who didn’t race last week will start second. The entire starting grid for the STP 500 is listed below.
