RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Kevin Harvick has won the pole for Saturday night's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond Raceway.
Harvick turned a fast lap at 124.298 mph Friday to earn the 27th pole of his career and his second this season. He's the first driver with more than one pole this season.
Erik Jones will start on the outside of the front row, with Kurt Busch and Joey Logano in the second row. The top 10 also includes Kyle Busch, who will be seeking his third consecutive victory on the track, Martin Truex Jr., Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon, Daniel Suarez and Jimmie Johnson.
"For me, all three rounds went really good and we had a good race practice," Harvick said. A second scheduled practice was rained out.
