Aric Almirola‘s good fortune – at least where starting grid spots are concerned – continues this week, as a random draw sits him on the NASCAR Cup Series pole for this weekend’s Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
It’s Almirola’s third pole by virtue of the random selection and his 10th top-five starting spot since NASCAR returned amid the coronavirus pandemic and began the random draw process.
Meanwhile, both JTG Daugherty Racing machines will be mired in the back of the field after a rough night last Thursday at Kansas. Ryan Preece and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. are set to roll off 30th and 31st, respectively.
This weekend’s Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 will get underway shortly after 3 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 2.
