Kyle Busch won the pole for the Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway on Sunday, holding off strong performances from Martin Truex Jr. and Jamie McMurray.
Busch finished with a top time of 50.317 seconds and a top speed of 179.372 MPH, according to NASCAR.com.
The Overton’s 400 featured a fairly unusual format Sunday: Qualifying and the race itself on the same day. The drivers will compete in the race—which features major ramifications for the playoffs—later this afternoon at 3 p.m. ET.
More than a few drivers likely need a win at Pocono or at one of the final regular-season races this year with 12 of the 16 playoff berths already secured. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is certainly one. Kyle Busch, Jamie McMurray, Chase Elliott, Clint Bowyer and Matt Kenseth, amongst others, are all jockeying for position as well.
