Kevin Harvick takes pole ahead of Geico 500

Sports

Kevin Harvick will start on the pole Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway while he goes for his fourth win of the year.

Harvick won pole position for the first time since last September at Darlington. Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Kurt Busch joins him on the front row. Harvick won three races in a row earlier this season, matching points leader Kyle Busch’s current streak.

Talladega is often chaotic, but drivers have said Sunday’s race seems more unpredictable than usual.
