Bubba Wallace, Austin Dillon, Chase Elliott, Chase Briscoe, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Ty Dillon and Kyle Busch did not turn in a lap during the first round of qualifying and will start in positions 34-40.

Wallace’s car stalled which resulted in the session being red flagged but time did not stop.

The NASCAR Cup Series Jockey 250 at Road America will go green just after 2:30 p.m. ET (TV: NBC; Radio: MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
