Denny Hamlin will lead the NASCAR Cup Series field to green at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday, April 25.
The No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota driver claimed the pole after finishing runner up last week at Richmond Raceway.
Team Penske’s Joey Logano will line up alongside Hamlin on the front row, while Hamlin’s teammate Martin Truex Jr. slots in third. Hendrick Motorsports cohorts William Byron and Alex Bowman round out the top-five starters.
Four weighted categories were combined to form the lineup: driver’s and car owner’s finishing position from the previous race (25% each), team owner’s points ranking (35%) and fastest lap from the previous race (15%).
The GEICO 500 airs April 25 at 2 p.m. ET on FOX.
