Kevin Harvick Takes the Pole at the Monster Mile at Dover
DOVER, Del. (AP) – Kevin Harvick has won the pole at Dover International Speedway after rain wiped out qualifying Friday.
Harvick will start first in Sunday’s Sprint Cup race because he posted the fastest lap of 165.145 mph in the only practice.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. joins Harvick on the front row. Joe Gibbs Racing placed Kyle Busch third and Carl Edwards fourth. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. rounded out the top five.
Harvick had not won a pole through the first 11 races of the season.
The lone practice was marred by a three-car accident that involved Danica Patrick, Tony Stewart and Jamie McMurray.
