In the Daytona 500 qualifying on Wednesday night, Alex Bowman was thrilled to maintain one streak; but, his attention is now on breaking another.

At an actual lap speed of 181.686 mph, Bowman, who competes in the NASCAR Cup Series in the No. 48 Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports, comfortably defeated driver Kyle Larson to claim the pole position for Sunday’s 500.

Bowman will now start on the front row of the season opener for a NASCAR record sixth consecutive time after securing the pole. Three of his four career pole positions—which he has won—came in the Daytona 500.

No victory has resulted from any of those front-row starts, though. Also, since 2014, no Hendrick racer has triumphed in the season’s biggest event (Dale Earnhardt Jr.).

“Every year it’s, ‘Man, now it’s time to finish, like make it to the end.’ Last year, I think I sat on the back straightaway for four laps before they could figure out how to get me to pit road with four flat tires,” Bowman, 29, said.

“It’s such a hard race to finish. We’ve crashed early, we’ve crashed in the middle, we’ve crashed late. Obviously, I don’t have the answer. I haven’t figured out how to finish it yet.”

The Hendrick team’s previous success in qualifying for the race does give Bowman some confidence going into the race each season, and any edge is good.

“I know we have a really fast race car and a great group of guys that are capable of doing great,” he said. “But, man, it’s been tough. We want to finish this race and finish it well.”
