If Kyle Busch is to win his first race of the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season on Saturday at Richmond Raceway, he will have to come all the way from the rear to do it. That’s because the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota failed pre-race inspection twice and will have to move to the rear during pace laps.
Busch, who leads active drivers with six wins at the .75-mile Virginia short track, was originally slated to start sixth. Kevin Harvick will lead the field to the green flag in the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford with Joey Logano, in the No. 22 Team Penske Ford, also on the front row.
