Kenseth set a blistering speed in the final segment to take the pole. Looks like he may have done enough in the first two segments to advance and then set the track on fire in the third.
Nice to see the 21 car on the front row. For all the “I miss how it used to be people” this has to be a nice sight.
Also a nice run for Stenhouse Jr after slapping the wall. Might have made the car better as he ran his best laps after that little kiss coming out of 4.
My pick for the race? Two years ago was my first Richmond race. I watched Matt Kenseth dominate that race and win. I have no long run data on him but if he can replicate the lap he ran in qualifying during the race he will punch his ticket into the chase Sunday afternoon.
