This Easter Sunday's Toyota Owners 400 is the first of two annual NASCAR Cup Series races at Richmond Raceway on the 2024 schedule.

The race is set to be a 400-lap race around the four-turn, 0.75-mile (1.207-kilometer) Richmond, Virginia oval. Because the track is not a superspeedway, group qualifying is set to be used to set the starting lineup. Because it is a short track, each driver is set to get two timed laps in qualifying, not just one.

Qualifying groups and order were determined by the metric NASCAR introduced four seasons ago in the absence of qualifying. For a more detailed explanation of that format, read more here.

The fastest five drivers in each group are set to advance to the second round shootout for the pole position. The rest of the lineup is set to be determined by the results of the first round, with the results of the first group determining the even starting positions outside the top 10 and the results of the second group determining the odd starting positions outside the top 10 (a slight change from last year).
