CONCORD, N.C. — Tyler Reddick will start on the pole Sunday in the NASCAR Cup Series at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.

Reddick posted a lap averaging 102.839 MPH around the 2.28-mile road course-oval hybrid.

This is the sixth career pole for the 23XI Racing driver. However, it is the first time he has earned a pole at The Roval.

In four of his five previous poles, Reddick went on to lead at least 32 laps. That includes Indianapolis last year where he led 38 of 86 laps and won.

A win Sunday would be big for Reddick as he sits two points below the cutline. Sunday is also the cutoff race before the Round of 8.

The top 10 qualifiers are as follows: Reddick, Christopher Bell (+22 to cutline) Daniel Suarez, Bubba Wallace (-9), Kyle Busch (-26), A.J. Allmendinger, Joey Logano, Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin (+50), Ty Gibbs.

Gibbs starts 10th after not getting to post a lap in the final round. Denny Hamlin spun and stalled in the backstretch chicane, which ended qualifying.

Martin Truex Jr. (+17) qualified 11th, meaning all six Toyotas qualified in the top-11.

Bubble drivers Ross Chastain (-10) Brad Keselowski (+2), Chris Buescher (+19) and Kyle Larson (+15) start 12th, 19th, 20th and 36th respectively.

Larson wrecked in practice and didn’t get to qualify.

Larson will start 36th, just ahead of Ty Dillon who had issues and will also start in the rear.
