Harvick on pole for Richmond Nationwide race
Kevin Harvick
Kevin Harvick edged fellow Sprint Cup Series competitor and Virginia-native Denny Hamlin in Friday's qualifying to take the pole for the Virginia 529 College Savings 250 Nationwide Series race at Richmond International Raceway.

Harvick turned a lap at 124.625 mph, which was only 0.003 seconds faster than Hamlin's qualifying lap. He earned his 24th career Nationwide pole, including his second at this 0.75-mile racetrack.

Hamlin, who hails from nearby Chesterfield, is the defending race winner.

Rookies Austin Dillon and Cole Whitt qualified third and fourth, respectively, while Sprint Cup regular Kasey Kahne took the fifth spot.

Travis Pastrana will start 25th in what will be his long-awaited first Nationwide race. Pastrana, a worldwide action sports icon, is scheduled for at least seven races in NASCAR's second-tier series this season, driving the No. 99 Toyota for RAB Racing.
