Best Nascar Ford Will Start Sixth For 2022 Coca-Cola 600

Austin Cindric, driver of the No. 2 Nascar Ford Mustang, qualified the best of The Blue Oval teams for the 2022 Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The 2022 Daytona 500 winner will start sixth after posting a time of 29.621 seconds. For comparison, Denny Hamlin, driver of the No. 11 Toyota TRD Camry, nailed the pole position with a time of 29.399, followed by Kurt Busch in the No. 45 Toyota in second. Christopher Bell in the No. 20 Toyota will start third, while Kyle Busch in the No. 18 Toyota will start fourth. Breaking the Toyota monotony is William Byron, who will start fifth in the No. 24 Nascar Camaro.

Two teams were penalized for failing pre-qualifying inspection: the No. 31 Camaro ZL1 of Justin Haley and the No. 50 of Kaz Grala. As a result, both teams will lose crewmembers and pit stall selection for Sunday’s race. No Nascar Ford teams were penalized.

The green flag will drop on Nascar’s longest race on May 29th at 6 p.m. ET.

    So NASCAR gave Joe Gibbs the magic tune up, three Gibbs cars plus one of Denny Hamlin’s cars (technically Gibbs) in the top four
