Martinsville Speedway is scheduled to host the first of its two annual NASCAR Cup Series races this Sunday afternoon. The Cook Out 400 is the eighth of 36 races on the 2024 schedule, and it is the first points race set to be shown live on Fox Sports 1 as opposed to regular Fox.

This race is scheduled to be a 400-lap race around the four-turn, 0.526-mile (0.847-kilometer) Ridgeway, Virginia. With Martinsville Speedway being a short track, a group qualifying format is set to be utilized, and each driver is set to get two timed laps as opposed to one during the single-car session.

The groups -- and more specifically, the qualifying order -- were determined by the qualifying metric NASCAR introduced four years ago, initially designed to set the starting lineups whenever there is an absence of qualifying. A full rundown of that formula can be found here.

The fastest five drivers in each of the two groups advance to the second round to battle for the pole position. Marking a slight change from last year, the rest of the drivers from the first group are set to start on the outside row, and the rest of the drivers from the second group are set to start on the inside row.
