CUP SERIES: Paul Menard won the pole for Sunday’s race at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois.

It’s the second career pole for Menard, who has just one top-five finish this season. He also qualified first for a race at Daytona almost exactly 10 years ago.

Menard turned a lap at 180.012 mph in his No. 21 Wood Brothers Racing Ford.

Ryan Blaney joined Menard on the front row. Blaney was second at 179.880 mph in his No. 12 Team Penske Ford.

Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin and Kurt Busch rounded out the top five. Martin Truex Jr., who has won the last two Cup Series races at Chicagoland, qualified 12th.

Brandon Jones moved into the top spot when he stayed on the track while the leaders went in for a pit stop, but the caution he needed never materialized and Larson pulled away when Jones finally went into pit road.
