Ricky Stenhouse Jr. wins the Daytona 500 pole

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will start the 2020 Daytona 500 from the pole. Anytime you can start the season off with a new organization and see all the work they put in - guys in the shop that I don't even know are working late nights. That was our goal coming down here. "I'm just thankful for the opportunity to be here and bring guys with me like (crew chief) Brian (Pattie) and Mike (Kelley)". This is the team's third Cup pole.

While he was one of the few who had the speed to challenge Stenhouse's blistering pole effort, Bowman found it hard to be too disappointed after placing his team in the top two at Daytona again.

Stenhouse captured the pole with a top lap of 194.582 miles per hour in his first qualifier for JTG-Daugherty Racing, which signed him after he was sacked by Roush Fenway Racing last season.

Asked what it meant considering the offseason transition, Stenhouse said, "It's huge".

"I'm looking forward to hopefully continuing this momentum on Thursday".

The second fastest to lock in the front row, for the third consecutive time, was Alex Bowman in the No. 88 Chevrolet of Hendrick Motorsports. We have a great Valvoline Camaro. It's not a pole, but (starting on the) front row is still really good. But when Penske drivers Ryan Newman and Kurt Busch approached him, Stewart didn't feel safe running alone without any ally.

"We definitely have a auto fastest enough to win this race under green-flag conditions", said the 20-year-old Haley, who is now driving for Kaulig Racing.

That pair will join Stenhouse and Bowman on the front rows of the two Bluegreen Vacations Duels at Daytona, which roll off Thursday night at 7 p.m. and 8:45 p.m., respectively, on FOX Sports 1. Denny Hamlin rounded out the top-five qualifiers in the No. 11 Toyota.

William Byron, rookie Christopher Bell and Erik Jones - the final auto to take a lap - completed the top 10.

He was surprisingly dumped by Roush Fenway Racing in October, long after the two-time Xfinity Series champion thought he was good for another year with the only NASCAR team for which he's driven.

Stenhouse was the 18th vehicle to run and had to sit through the rest of the 43-car field until he knew he secured the top spot for the February 16 race, where he finished a career-best seventh in 2014.

"It's cool", Stenhouse told reporters Sunday. He crashed into a concrete wall in a race the day before the 2015 Daytona 500 and broke his right leg and left foot. His 208 victories in the three national NASCAR series always make him the driver to beat, not necessarily one that the rest of the field could graciously accept as a popular victor.
