Tyler Reddick will lead the NASCAR Cup Series field to the green flag Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after claiming his fourth Busch Pole Award in qualifying.

Reddick topped the chart in the final round at 184.603 mph (29.252s). The Richard Childress Racing driver was the second to last driver to take time in the final round of single-car qualifying.

Three of Reddick’s four career poles in the NASCAR Cup Series have come this season. It will be the first time he’s started on the pole at Las Vegas.

Harrison Burton qualified eighth at 182.908 mph, Bubba Wallace qualified ninth at 182.033 mph, and Austin Dillon qualified 10th at 181.751 mph. Burton’s qualifying effort ties his career best in his rookie season.

The other four playoff drivers will start outside the top 10. Ross Chastain qualified 11th, Chase Briscoe qualified 16th and Chase Elliott qualified 20th. The lowest qualifying playoff driver was Denny Hamlin in 31st place. Hamlin is the defending race winner.
