The second-year driver for Stewart-Haas Racing drove through a bobble at the end of the backstretch and turned a lap of 138.274 mph on Saturday. That gave him the best starting spot for the first time in his 51st career start. Austin Cindric gave Ford the front row with a lap of 137.775 mph for Team Penske. Christopher Bell and Tyler Reddick will start in the second row and Ryan Blaney rounded out the top five in qualifying.
