For the second week in a row, Denny Hamlin is on the pole for the NASCAR Cup Series race, this time at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL.
Hamlin secured his spot in the Round of 8 after winning at Talladega Superspeedway last week.
Austin Dillon will wheel his No. 3 Chevrolet of Richard Childress Racing from the sixth position. Joe Gibbs Racing’s Martin Truex Jr. starts seventh, while Keselowski’s teammate Joey Logano is eighth. Kyle Busch and Kurt Busch complete the top 10 starters.
The lineup was formed using a combination of four weighted categories: 35% rank in owner points, 25% driver’s finishing position, 25% owner’s end position and 15% fastest lap from the previous event.
The Bank of America ROVAL 400 starts Sunday, Oct. 11 at 2:30 p.m. ET and airs on NBC and PRN radio.
