CONCORD, N.C. — Martin Truex earned the pole Thursday night for the Coca-Cola 600, NASCAR's longest race of the year.
Truex turned a lap of 192.328 mph at Charlotte Motor Speedway to take the top spot from Joey Logano.
Logano, who had the top qualifying time in the first two rounds and won the All-Star Race last week at Charlotte, will start alongside Truex on the front row for Sunday night's race. It's the fifth time this year Logano has started on the front row.
Ricky Stenhouse starts third, Denny Hamlin fourth and Brad Keselowski fifth. Greg Biffle was sixth-fastest in qualifying and Jimmie Johnson seventh.
Formula One: The family of Jules Bianchi is taking legal action against the FIA, the Marussia team and Formula One Management nearly a year after the driver died from head injuries. Bianchi, 25, died in July, about nine months after he skidded off the track in wet conditions at the Japanese Grand Prix and his car hit a crane which was picking up another wrecked car.
