Defending AAA Texas 500 race winner Kevin Harvick scored a custom Henry repeating rifle for his pole-winning lap on Salute to Veterans Qualifying Day Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway. His qualifying lap of 189.707 mph (28.465 sec.) topped Erik Jones’ (188.890 mph 28.588 sec.) by .123 seconds.

Harvick previously won a pole at the track in the spring of 2017. This makes his 30th career first-place start.

If you were wondering what difference the 2019 rules package makes in speed, consider that the track record at Texas Motor Speedway was set by Kurt Busch on November 5, 2017, at 200.915 mph or 26.877 sec., a full 11.208 mph faster than Harvick’s lap Saturday.

Denny Hamlin’s lap of 188.712 (28.615) puts him starting third, while Kurt Busch’s 188.436 (28.657) puts him starting fourth. Busch's run came fresh off the announcement of his contract extension with Ganassi Racing and Monster Energy. 

Alex Bowman rounded out the top five with a fast lap of 188.357 (28.669).

Fords fill the next four spots with Aric Almirola, Daniel Suarez, Brad Keselowski, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., giving them half of the top ten starting positions. Matt DiBenedetto nosed into tenth by .006 seconds.

Tune in to NBCSN or SiriusXM NASCAR radio on Sunday, November 3, at 2:00 PM Central Standard Time. The green flag is scheduled for 2:18 PM CST.
