NASCAR Cup Series at Gateway: Starting lineup, TV schedule for Sunday's race

Michael McDowell is on the pole for Sunday’s Enjoy Illinois 300 NASCAR Cup Series race at World Wide Technology Raceway.

McDowell set a track record in the first round of qualifying before earning his third pole of 2024 in the final round. The 39-year-old will likely need to win a race to make the playoffs in his final year with Front Row Motorsports; McDowell is set to leave Front Row for Spire Motorsports in 2025.

Only one Chevrolet (Kyle Busch) advanced to the final round of qualifying under overcast skies near St. Louis.

Here’s the full starting lineup for Sunday’s Enjoy Illinois 300.
