Harvick claimed his sixth pole of the year with a top speed of 189.707 mph around the 1.5-mile track.
“The best part is (the car) drove really well in race trim yesterday and still had a lot of speed,” Harvick told NBC Sports. “Put that in qualifying trim today and still made speed. Hopefully we can keep our track position. I think as you saw the last race, you want to be up front. You want to be on the right cycle of rotation of pit strategy and having that first pit stall is definitely an advantage here.”
This is Jones’ best qualifying result of the season.
John Hunter Nemechek qualified 29th for his Cup Series debut. He and father Joe Nemechek will be the first father-son pairing to compete in a Cup race since the Bobby Hamilton and Bobby Hamilton Jr. in October 2005 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
