After clinching the regular season championship last weekend Kevin Harvick will lead the NASCAR Cup Series field to green at Daytona International Speedway Saturday night, Aug. 29.
Harvick won the Busch Pole Award thanks to a formula that combines finishing position from the last race, owner’s points and fastest lap from the previous race.
The No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing driver will start next to Martin Truex Jr. on the front row. Team Penske’s Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski make up the second row and Aric Almirola rounds out the top five.
Hendrick Motorsports teammates and playoff battlers William Byron and Jimmie Johnson start sixth and seventh. Alex Bowman is eighth, Ryan Blaney begins ninth and Denny Hamlin completes the top 10 qualifiers.
The Coke Zero Sugar 400 will air on Saturday, Aug. 29, at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
