2014 Bristol II: Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Qualifying Recap

Chevrolet took its third straight pole and will occupy the front row for Saturday night’s IRWIN Tools Night race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 4 Jimmy Johns Chevrolet SS, scored his fifth NASCAR Sprint Cup series pole position and continues to extend his career record for poles won in a single season. His lap of 14.607 seconds and average speed of 131.362 was a new track record for the .5-mile speedway.

Team Chevy driver, Jeff Gordon, who turned the second fastest time in his No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet SS, will join Harvick on the outside of the front row. This is the third straight front row start for Gordon.

"It feels great," said Harvick following his pole-winning run. "Just have to thank everybody on our Jimmy John’s team for really everything they do every week for qualifying and race cars that they bring to the race track are just incredibly fast. They have helped improve my qualifying record a tremendous amount. Today was no different."
