Martin Truex Jr. poses with the trophy in Victory Lane after winning the pole position for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup series auto race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C., Thursday, May the 26th, 2016. In the final five-minute segment, Truex Jr. shot to the top of the scoring pylon with a fast speed of 192.328 miles per hour, clinching his second pole in the last three Sprint Cup races.
The Coca-Cola 600 is the longest race in Nascar, stretching 600 miles, so gas mileage is no joke. Starting on the pole here is very important, as 28% of race winners have started on the front row, with 76% being won from the top-10. In 24 Charlotte starts, he has 10 top fives and 14 top 10s with a high finish of second (twice, fall of 2010 and fall of 2011).
Truex said he's happy with how he's been running this season and believes he had a good chance to make up for last season's disappointment.
We're going to be on pit road a lot Sunday night and that's certainly going to be an advantage.
