Kyle Larson Wins 4th Pole of 2017 at New Hampshire

UPDATE: Larson time disallowed, Truex Jr. to start on pole Sunday.

Once again, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will see Kyle Larson and Martin Truex Jr. (in that order) start on the front row.

This time, it’s at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for Sunday’s Overton’s 301. Larson, who topped the field for the fourth time in 2017, ripped around the one-mile track in 28.568 seconds (133.324 mph) for pole No. 5 of his Cup career.

“It’s really cool to get the pole,” Larson said. “The final round, I was nervous about the No. 78 each of the first two rounds. I didn’t run the best first lap but recovered and had enough to hold him off.”

Indeed, Truex was second in qualifying, starting in the spot for the sixth time in 2017. The Furniture Row Racing driver was only 0.053 behind Larson’s time.

Jimmie Johnson will start third while Matt Kenseth, who has won two of the last three Cup Loudon races, in fourth followed by Jamie McMurray and Kasey Kahne.

The session was paused only once after David Ragan spun his No. 38 in Turn 1 in the early minutes. The Front Row Motorsports driver starts 33rd.

Erik Jones was seventh with Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Kurt Busch the top 10.

  1. I think the Modified race should be the feature on Sunday and run the cup event on Monday NIGHT so viewers use the event as a cure for insomnia.
