Kyle Larson is on a quite a roll.

A week after winning the pole and subsequently winning the race at Michigan, Larson was the fastest qualifier in the second round of qualifying at Sonoma on Saturday and will start first at the road course. He’s joined on the front row by teammate Jamie McMurray.

Larson officially has three poles this season but has started first five times because qualifying has been rained out twice while he’s been the points leader. He’s the current points leader too. The win at Michigan elevated him above Martin Truex in the standings.

McMurray has been solidly consistent in 2017. He’s fifth in the points standings and is no stranger to the front row at Sonoma. He’s started either first or second at the track six times in 15 starts counting Sunday’s race.
