It was Stenhouse's third NASCAR Cup pole and his first at Daytona. "But you can sure screw them up, so at least I didn't do that". "When Mr. Hendrick shows up in Victory Lane knowing we're running his engine package and me showing up at their engine shop a few weeks ago to meet the guys is pretty special".

"It's a good way to start our relationship with JTG", Stenhouse said.

Stenhouse, coincidentally, replaced Buescher at JTG and brought crew chief Brian Pattie with him.

Alex Bowman was second quickest at 194.363 miles per hour, meaning he has now started on the front row for the last three Daytona 500s.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. needed just two days to get his new team to the top.

Even so, the Hendrick Motorsports entries clearly have speed: Stenhouse receives power from Hendrick, and Hendrick drivers Bowman, Chase Elliott and Jimmie Johnson were second through fourth on the speed chart. "The wind started picking up there down the back straightaway and gave a little headwind for the other guys, so that helped us, I think", Stenhouse added.

"I'm looking forward to hopefully continuing this momentum on Thursday". The qualifying session also locked in the top two non-chartered teams into next weekend's Daytona 500 as well. Denny Hamlin rounded out the top-five qualifiers in the No. 11 Toyota. Obviously we wanted the pole, and just barely missed it there. "As a race vehicle driver there isn't much you can do to make these cars go faster, but you can sure screw them up".

Kaulig Racing's Justin Haley (47.364/190.018) and Beard Motorsports' Brendan Gaughan (47.633/188.945), who were 31st and 33rd on speed overall, led the way among the seven teams needing to time their ways into The Great American Race.

Next on-track action are the Duel 150s on Thursday evening to determine the 62 annual Daytona 500 starting line up.

Haley is the youngest driver in the field.
