For the first time this season, NASCAR used a mathematical formula to set the starting lineup for the 135-lap race, after inclement weather forced the practice session to be postponed. At the end of Stage 1 on Lap 30 he was in the 23rd-place. On Lap 46 Perkins made contact with the wall resulting in a right-rear tire down.
