BRISTOL, Tenn. – Todd Gilliland, Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano and Chase Elliott each will start on the pole for their respective Cup qualifying race Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The qualifying races begin at 6 p.m. ET Saturday.

Each qualifying race will be 15 laps. Only green flag laps will count and the overtime rule will not be in effect.
