William Byron earned his third pole of the season today during qualifying at Pocono Raceway. It is the second pole at Pocono for the Hendrick Motorsports driver, and the 11th of his career. Byron has never won at the "Tricky Triangle" but hopes to break through tomorrow, in what has been a career year for the championship leader. Martin Truex Jr will join him on the front row tomorrow, as the Joe Gibbs Racing driver carried his positive momentum into today's session.

Row 2 features Kyle Larson and Kevin Harvick, who will make his final start at Pocono. Harvick won the Spring race here in 2020, then finished runner-up in the second race that season. Christopher Bell and Joey Logano will start from Row 3 tomorrow, with Tyler Reddick and Denny Hamlin sharing Row 4. Austin Cindric and Bubba Wallace rounded out the top-ten in qualifying, with Wallace spinning during his attempt in the final round.

Ty Gibbs was the only Toyota driver not to make the final round of qualifying, but he barely missed it and will start 11th tomorrow. Brad Keselowski starts 13th, just ahead of Ryan Blaney of Team Penske. Chase Elliott and Todd Gilliland both spun during their qualifying runs and will start from the final row tomorrow. Elliott, who desperately needs a win to get into the Playoffs, is the defending race winner. He was awarded the victory after Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch were disqualified post-race last year.

Several more high-profile drivers will be starting in the back half of the field tomorrow. That includes Alex Bowman (20th), Ross Chastain (21st), Erik Jones (24th), Busch (25th), Aric Almirola (27th), and Chase Briscoe (29th) will all have some track position to make up tomorrow afternoon.

The good news for those drivers is that out of the last 18 races at Pocono, only one has been won from the pole. Two of the last four races have been won from the 19th starting spot and other winners have started 28th, 22nd, and 27th over the last decade. After the race tomorrow, there will only be five races remaining in the regular season.
