DOVER, Del. — Erik Jones will start on the pole position for Saturday’s Driver Sober 200 at Dover International Speedway.

The Joe Gibbs Racing driver turned a 158.318 mph in his No. 20 Toyota in the first round of qualifying. The session was halted by rain, and the field was set by first-round speeds.

Kyle Busch (157.660) will lined up alongside his JGR teammate on the front row. Joey Logano qualified third.

Jones is trying to rebound from a crash with fellow contender Ty Dillon last week at Kentucky Speedway in the opening race of the inaugural Chase in the Xfinity Series.
