Martin Truex Jr., who would have started second for the sixth time this season, will start on the pole for the first time this season.

NASCAR driver Kyle Larson's pit crew rush during qualifying for the Monster Energy All-Star race on Friday, May 19, 2017 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. Larson and his team won the pole for the race, to be run on Saturday, May 20, 2017.

Check out the interview above. While he historically hasn't been excellent at New Hampshire, he turned a corner there a year ago when he performed at a high level in both Cup races there. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series point leader laid down a lap of 133.077 miles per hour.

"I've been thinking all week about what [winning this race] would feel like", Truex said.

But Truex has the edge in playoff points, 28-13.Richmond International Raceway announced a $30 million infield renovation plan Tuesday. "It's really one of my favorite tracks and I know JR Motorsports has been great on short tracks this season. We're just as confused and disgruntled by it as probably others". "Confidence is high and (we are) just kind of using that to our advantage right now". NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France said in a statement that Dewar "has helped lead a cultural transformation of NASCAR" and has "spearheaded some of the most impactful enhancements NASCAR has implemented in its history". "We were there for four hours and I was in the vehicle a large majority of the time and I felt great inside the auto so I don't really foresee any issues".

The rookie has enjoyed some success in his first year of full-time Cup racing with five top-10 finishes through 18 races and is 14th in the Cup standings.

Truex has always enjoyed the northern hospitalities of NHMS. Truex, second in qualifying, moved up as the pole victor as Larson was sent to the back of pack. Larson is still 66 points ahead of third-place Kyle Busch. Him and Kyle Larson have been flip-flopping all season long.

It's the fifth career pole for Larson, including four during the current season. While he won't finish in the top-10 this week, a top-25 finish would be more than good enough considering his price tag and the fact that we have so much talent at the top of our lineup.
