Denny Hamlin won his fourth Xfinity Series pole of the season during Saturday’s final qualifying session for today's Sports Clips 200 at Darlington Raceway.

Hamlin turned in a lap of 28.640 seconds (171.704 mph) in the no. 20 SportsClips Toyota Camry during the third and final round to beat out his teammate Daniel Suarez and Kyle Larson to collect his third-straight Xfinity pole.

Suarez took second with a lap of 171.178 mph, followed by Larson (170.970) and Joey Logano (170.815). Paul Menard, who led the first two rounds of qualifying, rounded out the top five with a lap of 170.703 mph.

Kyle Busch – who has won in each of his last two Xfinity Series starts – had his qualifying time disallowed following a blend-line violation during the opening round of qualifying and will start the race from the 36th spot.
