Hamlin claimed pole position for the 35th time in his career, and for the second time this season. 

Qualifying was cancelled before the pole round due to a surprise rain shower, forcing NASCAR to base the lineup off of Round 1 times.

Three of the four JGR drivers will start inside the top-ten. The other, Kyle Busch, spun in Turns 3 and 4 , making minor contact with the outside wall. It was the only incident during the session.
