Harvick looked like he would win the pole with a speed of 137.878 mph until Elliott’s 138.116 mph effort came late in qualifying Saturday afternoon. It’s the ninth career pole of Elliott’s Cup career.
“Great to get a pole,” Elliott told FS1. “It’s always a good thing when you can put down a fast lap. Hopefully tomorrow goes good. That’s always the challenge. We’ll see and I’m looking forward to it.”
Harvick will start alongside Elliott on the front row of the 38-car race day field.
Sunday’s race begins at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be televised on Fox. The race will also be broadcast on the radio on the Motor Racing Network (also mrn.com) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
