5 Comments

With Saturday’s final practice now in the books, the stage is set for Sunday’s Axalta “We Paint Winners” 400 at Pocono Raceway.

And to no surprise, Kevin Harvick was again the fastest driver in Happy Hour with a burst of 175.974 mph. Harvick was fastest in all three practice sessions this weekend.

The defending Sprint Cup champion and current points leader, who has never won a Sprint Cup race at Pocono in his career, will start Sunday’s race fifth. Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Kurt Busch will start from the pole, with Carl Edwards alongside.

Kyle Larson was second-fastest in Saturday’s final practice (175.292 mph), followed by Kasey Kahne (174.914), Edwards (174.897) and Kurt Busch (174.829).

Here’s how Saturday’s final practice played out:
