2017-10-21 Martin Truex Jr. will start on pole for the Hollywood Casino 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoff elimination race at Kansas Speedway.

Truex ran the fastest lap of the afternoon in the final round of qualifying for Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400, covering the distance in 28.719 seconds at 188.029 mph to beat Kevin Harvick for the top starting spot by .053 seconds.

“I was shaking a little—I’m not going to lie,” Truex said. “My heart was beating. It gets the adrenaline going so high to put down a lap like that, to go the fastest you’ve gone all day in that final round.“We put it all together. We got the balance better, and I stepped up and put it on the line out there, and it stuck. The commitment level was high, and the car handled it well. That’s always a good combination.”

Ryan Blaney qualified third, Matt Kenseth fourth and Denny Hamlin fifth.

This is the 15th time Truex will lead the field to green in his career, coming in his 437th start.
