Martin Truex Jr. will lead the Pennsylvania 400 field to green Sunday at Pocono Raceway. His lap of 179.244 mph was good enough to outpace Carl Edwards’ 178.873. This is Truex’s 10th career pole.

Truex told pit reporter Parker Kligerman that this is the same car he had at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May. The Coke 600 was Truex’s latest pole and he was absolutely dominant in that event. That race was the first time in his career Truex won a race from the pole and he expects to add to that stat on Sunday.

Kevin Harvick posted the 17th fastest time in the second round of qualification and failed to advance to the final session. He will be forced to advance through the pack once the green flag waves.

Harvick will almost certainly finish in the top 10, which means this team is going to add at least seven place-differential points to his finishing total. This modest qualification run does not hurt his chances at all and should actually help his fantasy owners win their league.

Jimmie Johnson was one of several notable drivers who failed to advance to the final round of qualification for the Pennsylvania 400. His speed of 176.094 mph was only good enough for 21st on the grid.

Johnson also failed to advance last week at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but he was much closer. He started the Brickyard 400 13th and advanced to third. Two weeks ago he started on the pole at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and faded to 12th, so this modest qualification will not affect the team.

Kyle and Kurt Busch both failed to advance to the third and final round of qualification. Kyle posted a lap of 177.054 mph while Kurt was marginally better with a 177.183. Kyle starts the Pennsylvania 400 16th; Kurt will line up 15th.

Kyle won the pole last week, but was dinged in inspection this week and thrown out of his rhythm. Kurt is the defending winner from June and both of them should be highly regarded in race trim—and should earn positive place-differential points.

As time ran out on the first practice session, Jeff Gordon jumped from 24th to 22nd, moving the Greg Biffle to the bubble (24th). Biffle’s crew thought he was safe, but Chris Buescher was on track and logged a lap of 175.987 mph—jumping to 18th in the process, and bumping Biffle from round two. Biffle’s speed was 175.603 mph.

The knockout style qualification has made time trials entertaining. Notably Buescher’s fast lap came on his third run, which suggested that a little heat in the tires adds speed. Biffle will start the Pennsylvania 400 in 25th as Buescher continues to show incredible improvement in the Cup series.

Kyle Busch was the last driver to pass inspection for qualification at Pocono Raceway. He was not cleared to get onto the track because of a camber issue until half of the session was over and did not get onto the track until only six minutes remains.

Busch had the third-fastest time in Friday’s practice session. In the first round of time trials he posted a lap of 177.106 mph and easily advanced out of this session.
