2014 Atlanta: Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Qualifying Recap

Kevin Harvick put Chevrolet power on pole position Friday at Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS) for Sunday’s Oral-B USA 500. His lap of 190.398 mph (29.118 seconds) in the No. 4 Jimmy John’s Chevrolet SS was a full 0.3 mph faster than the second-place qualifier around the 1.54-mile track.

This marked the sixth pole thus far in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season for Harvick, and his first career pole at (AMS).

"Our car didn’t really change that much (from practice)," Harvick said. "I just messed the first round up really bad trying to do something that I wasn’t doing in practice. Luckily we were fast enough to be able to get through the first round into the second round. The second round we got into a little better rhythm where I wanted to run on the race track. I’ve got to thank everybody on our Jimmy John’s team. They make my life a lot easier on Fridays. This is a lot of fun."
