More than three of every four race win­ners — 78 per­cent, to be ex­act — in Rich­mond In­ter­na­tional Race­way’s 120-race Sprint Cup his­tory have started from in­side the top 10, but that’s only been true for half of the last six races at the 0.75mile venue. Kevin Har­vick, Carl Ed­wards and Joey Logano all started 17th or worse to win races at the track in 2013 and 2014. But since then, race win­ners have come from much more pre­ferred start­ing po­si­tions like 1st (Brad Ke­selowski, fall 2014), 2nd (Kurt Busch, last April) and 3rd (Matt Kenseth, last Septem­ber).
