Harvick claims Atlanta pole

Harvick claims Atlanta pole

New Hampshire hosts two points races, one in July and the other in September.

On the track, we saw drivers in attack mode as they battled head-to-head on the Speedway's 2.5-mile track.

NASCAR issued a statement from Jim Cassidy, senior vice president of Racing Operations and NASCAR Event Management, that said: "We are constantly working with promoters to discuss and develop NASCAR schedules". This is partly because many competitors ran out of fuel in the final laps. Under the new stage format, Johnny Sauter finished the race with 42 points even though he finished the race 15th overall.

Harvick won Stage 2 convincingly, but his auto tightened up in the final third of the race, as shadows covered Turns 1 and 2.

"It took so long to get here to begin with", Busch said in Victory Lane.

Harvick took the pole for the second race of the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup season on Friday, turning a lap of 190.398 miles per hour in the third round of qualifying. Reed will look to join Grala this season, as one of the young drivers to look out for in the 2017 campaign. In addition to the numerous celebrities, the race was run in front of a sold out crowd of more than 100,000 spectators, all of who were treated to one of the best finishes in Daytona 500 history.




Another Cup regular, Kyle Larson, was third.

Kasey Kahne has failed to win a race in his last 84 starts but on Sunday he returns to the site of his last victory.

Kurt Busch, the victor of the Daytona 500, was 13th. Tony Stewart, owner of Stewart-Haas Racing, had never won a Daytona 500 in 18 attempts as a driver.

What a great story it would be if Chase Elliott can pull out his first Cup victory at his hometown track in the final race before the track undergoes a repave. That happened back in 2004 when Busch drove the No. 97 Ford for Jack Rousch Racing.

2014 Cup champion Kevin Harvick spoke favorably of Las Vegas Motor Speedway hosting a second race following Friday qualifying for Sunday's race at Atlanta, though he cautioned about market oversaturation.
