In the last round of qualifying on Saturday, Truex, who had qualified ninth out of ten, took the lead with an average track pace of 127.113 mph.

The pole position is Truex’s first since switching to Joe Gibbs Racing and the 20th of his profession.

“I’m really just proud of everybody on the team. We’ve had an up-and-down year and we’ve been digging and clawing and scratching and fighting and just proud of everyone,” said Truex, who has never won at New Hampshire in 28 career starts.

“This track has always been a special one for me. I certainly didn’t come here expecting to have this kind of speed and I’m just so proud of everybody.

“It’s going to be very difficult to pass. You could kind of see it in practice. I kind of caught a guy and I just kept slowing down the more he slowed down. Track position will be huge. Our pit crew has really come a long way since the beginning of the year and we’re really going to have to lean on them tomorrow.”

Chase Elliott, who won the race the week before, finished in second place (126.922 mph). He’ll make his front-row debut for the third week in a row.

Kurt Busch and Bubba Wallace will start third and fourth, respectively, as 23XI Racing dominated the second row. The top five is completed by Christopher Bell.

William Byron, who was quickest in practise, Aric Almirola, Kyle Larson, Brad Keselowski, and Kevin Harvick, who got loose on his quick lap and had to take off the gas, round out the top ten starting lineup.
