Kevin Harvick will lead the NASCAR Cup Series field to green at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Sunday (March 7).
His No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford was placed on the pole after he finished fifth at Homestead-Miami Speedway last week.
Homestead’s victor William Byron joins Harvick on the front row, while his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Kyle Larson is third. Martin Truex Jr. will wheel his No. 19 Toyota of Joe Gibbs Racing from fourth, while Daytona 500 champion Michael McDowell rounds out the top five.
The lineup was formed using an equation that combined four weighted categories: driver’s finishing position (25%), owner’s finishing position (25%), fastest lap (15%) and team owner’s points (35%).
The Pennzoil 400 airs on March 7 at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX and PRN radio.
