Kevin Harvick will lead the field to green in the NASCAR Cup Series’ second race in the Round of 8 at Texas Motor Speedway.
The No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing pilot nabbed the Busch Pole Award after finishing runner-up to Joey Logano last week at Kansas Speedway.
Joe Gibbs Racing colleagues Martin Truex Jr. and Denny Hamlin line up sixth and seventh. The Busch brothers, Kurt and Kyle, start eighth and ninth, respectively, and Ryan Blaney rounds out the top 10.
The lineup was formed using an equation that combined four weighted categories: rank in owner points (35%), driver’s finishing position (25%), team owner’s finishing position (25%) and fastest lap from previous race (15%).
The Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500 airs on Sunday, Oct. 25 at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
