Joey Logano won his first pole of the season Friday as he ran the fastest qualifying time at Kansas Speedway for Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400 (2:30 p.m. ET, NBC).

“It’s been a while since we got a pole so it feels nice to be able to break through and start in a good spot for this final race of the cutoff,” Logano told NBCSN after his run.

Logano’s last pole before Friday was at the fall race at Martinsville in 2017.

Kevin Harvick, who won the spring race in Kansas this season, will start second.

Kyle Larson, who needs a win or massive help on points to move on to the Round of 8 in NASCAR’s playoffs, wrecked in practice and finished 27th in qualifying in a backup car.
