The race is scheduled for 160 laps around the 2.5 mile oval with stage lengths of 50, 50 and 60 laps. The later start time is notable, because Indianapolis Motor Speedway does not have lights in the event Sunday’s race is delayed by weather.NASCAR starting lineup at IndianapolisHere are the results of Thursday’s draw for the starting lineup in the Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 Powered by Big Machine Records at Indianapolis Motor Speedway:Pos.DriverCar No. Team1Joey Logano22Team Penske2Kurt Busch1Chip Ganassi Racing3Alex Bowman88Hendrick Motorsports4Justin Allgaier*48Hendrick Motorsports5Aric Almirola10Stewart-Haas Racing6Denny Hamlin11Joe Gibbs Racing7Kyle Busch18Joe Gibbs Racing8Martin Truex Jr.19Joe Gibbs Racing9Brad Keselowski2Team Penske10Chase Elliott9Hendrick Motorsports11Kevin Harvick4Stewart-Haas Racing12Ryan Blaney12Team Penske13Tyler Reddick8Richard Childress Racing14Ryan Newman6Roush Fenway Racing15Matt DiBenedetto21Wood Brothers Racing16Austin Dillon3Richard Childress Racing17Bubba Wallace43Richard Petty Motorsports18William Byron24Hendrick Motorsports19John Hunter Nemechek38Front Row Motorsports20Chris Buescher17Roush Fenway Racing21Matt Kenseth42Chip Ganassi Racing22Clint Bowyer14Stewart-Haas Racing23Erik Jones20Joe Gibbs Racing24Ricky Stenhouse Jr.47JTG Daugherty Racing25Joey Gase51Petty Ware Racing26Brennan Poole15Premium Motorsports27Michael McDowell34Front Row Motorsports28Garrett Smithley53Rick Ware Racing29Ty Dillon13Germain Racing30Cole Custer41Stewart-Haas Racing31Corey LaJoie32Go Fas Racing32Ross Chastain77Spire Motorsports33Quin Houff00StarCom Racing34JJ Yeley27Rick Ware Racing35Christopher Bell95Leavine Family Racing36Ryan Preece37JTG Daugherty Racing37Daniel Suarez96Gaunt Brothers Racing38Timmy Hill66Motorsports Business Management39Johs Bilicki7Tommy Baldwin Racing40BJ McLeod78BJ McLeod Motorsports* Allgaier is driving in place of Jimmie Johnson, who tested positive for COVID-19.
