Kyle Larson will start the first race of the NASCAR Cup Series doubleheader at Pocono from pole position.

Hendrick Motorsports’ no.5 car driver Larson is doubtedly one of the drivers to beat in the Cup Series grid after three consecutive points race wins. Thanks to the metric system, he will lead the field to the green flag in the opening race of the Pocono doubleheader. His teammate William Byron will follow him on the front row.

Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano, and Kyle Busch complete the starting top 5. The top 20 finishers of the race will be inverted to form the starting grid of the second race on Sunday.
