Denny Hamlin starts from pole at Watkins Glen

Denny Hamlin starts from pole at Watkins Glen

Chase Elliott is the son of Hall of Famer Bill Elliott.

Elliott's last race was in July 2012 in the NASCAR Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway.

Toss in the raucous cheers of the sellout crowd and it doesn't get much better than that. "He has been a big supporter of mine and that was one of the coolest things ever and I will never forget it". "We're getting close. This is what we need, to run top five every week, and if we continue to do this, I'm going to be a happy boy".

Joey Logano, who won the Xfinity race moments earlier, qualified sixth, followed by Aric Almirola, AJ Allmendinger, Erik Jones, Kasey Kahne, Ryan Blaney and Michael McDowell. It was a two-car race as the rest of the field was more than 11 seconds back.

Busch took charge on the restart, pulling away to a lead of almost three seconds over Truex, with Hamlin third and Chase Elliott fourth. But Truex's No. 78 Toyota skidded, Elliott regrouped and pulled away and Truex sputtered home, out of fuel. I couldn't get it and I was sideways. I leaned on him a lot over this past offseason and I always lean on him, but certainly a lot throughout this off season just about the opportunities I've had in the past and not closing them out. "I felt like we had a top-five, top-seven vehicle or so".

The only two drivers who have won three straight on road courses are Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart. It's Hamlin's 27th career pole in Cup.

"You do what you can do, " said Keselowski, a three-time runner-up at The Glen, "if it takes strategy to win, you play strategy".

"He's excited about it", Chase Elliott said. "It's a huge deal".

"Last year we had a lug nut get stuck in the caliper". That gave Elliott the lead, which he held until the end. Truex climbed to fourth, dropping Johnson to 13th and out of the running for the 10-minute second round. The fuel probe malfunctioned on the ensuing pit stop and the crew only got a few gallons into the No. 18 Toyota.

"Every year we come here, we have a fast auto and fail to execute, whether that's just called bad luck or whatever", Busch said.

Pearn was pivotal previous year at The Glen when the No. 78 won a strategic fuel mileage race.

NASCAR changed pre-race inspections this week to Sunday morning during its second-straight two-day event and only two cars failed. Stenhouse finished 16th, 12 spots ahead of Menard, and leads him by 10 points. He remains third in driver and playoff points.

The victory came in Elliott's 99th career start and his third race at The Glen, where he had back-to-back 13th-place finishes.

JOEY'S SHORT DAY: Joey Logano started on the third row and was gunning for his second Watkins Glen sweep. "That's key. It's impossible. when you get the auto out of the hauler to make that 20th-place vehicle a winning race auto by the end of second practice".
