Harvick wins pole in Darlington  
Kevin Harvick
Kevin Harvick won the Coors Light Pole Award at Darlington Raceway for Saturday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bojangles' Southern 500.

Harvick won his seventh career pole and his first of the 2014 season by posting a fast lap of 183.479 mph in the final round of knockout-style qualifying.

Harvick also topped Friday's first session of practice for the Sprint Cup Series. In 17 Cup races at Darlington, he has yet to win.

Joining Harvick on the front row is Joey Logano (183.049). Logano remains the only driver to advance through every round of knockout qualifying.

Richard Petty Motorsports teammates Aric Almirola and Marcos Ambrose will start from Row 2. Almirola set a track record in the second round of qualifying with a fast lap of 184.145 mph.

Brad Keselowski and Jamie McMurray will start from Row 3. Seven-time Darlington winner Jeff Gordon will start ninth.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., Carl Edwards and last week's pole winner at Texas, Tony Stewart, were among the notable drivers to not make it past the second round of qualifying.

Defending race winner Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Danica Patrick were among the notable drivers to not make it through the first round of knockout-style qualifying.

David Reutimann was the lone driver who failed to qualify for Saturday's 43-car field.

The Bojangles’ Southern 500 is set for Saturday at Darlington Raceway with a scheduled green flag time of 6:45 p.m. ET. The race will be televised on FOX with TV coverage beginning at 6 p.m. ET.
