The next round of the NASCAR Xfinity race will kick off at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. As always, the officials have published the grid lineup ahead of the race weekend. Fresh off his win at Homestead-Miami, Myatt Snider finds himself on pole position ahead of Austin Cindric.

Just outside the Top 10 are Ryan Sieg and Riley Herbst, with Michael Annett and Landon Cassill behind them. JJ Yeley starts 15th, with Dexter Bean sharing the 8th row on the grid. Row 9 consists of Alex Labbe and Timmy Hill, with Kyle Weatherman and Ty Dillon at the tail of the Top 20.

How does the rest of the grid line up behind Myatt Snider?

It is worth mentioning that Harrison Burton starts 22nd, behind Tommy Joe Martins. Meanwhile, former IndyCar driver Santino Ferrucci lines up in 23rd place, in front of Josh Williams. Brandon Brown and Joe Graf Jr share the 13th row, with Jade Buford and David Starr on Row 14.

Meanwhile, Noah Gragson and Justin Allgaier will be hugely disappointed to start so low. After being robbed of a win at Homestead-Miami, Gragson is starting all the way down in 34th place. Still, it could be worse, as poor old Allgaier starts 37th, and Tyler Reddick props up the back of the grid.

Myatt Snider currently lies second in the Xfinity Series championship, behind Cindric. So, if the Richard Childress Racing driver can somehow convert pole to victory, he should eat into Cindric’s championship lead. Everything depends on whether Snider can win the race and how low the defending champion finishes on the track.
