In his 192nd NASCAR Cup Series start, William Byron is officially a member of the double-digit pole winners club, scoring the pole for Sunday's AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway.
The Hendrick Motorsports driver will lead the field to the green for the second time this season, posting a lap time of 30.133 seconds (179.206mph).
Byron led his teammate Kyle Larson by six thousandths of a second, while Ross Chastain - a fellow Chevrolet driver - clocked in third, just 12 thousandths of a second behind the pole winner.
Martin Truex, Jr. and Tyler Reddick completed the top-five starters from Saturday. Joey Logano, Ty Gibbs, Denny Hamlin, Daniel Suarez, and Ryan Blaney completed the top-10.
Austin Dillon will start from 11th, after being knocked out of the final round of qualifying at the last possible second. Christopher Bell, who sits second in NASCAR Cup Series points, will start 12th.
Other notables not starting inside the top-10 for Sunday's race, include Kevin Harvick (P13), Kyle Busch (P16), Brad Keselowski (P20), Chase Elliott (P21), Josh Berry (P29), and Chase Briscoe (P31).
Josh Bilicki, driving the No. 78 for Live Fast Motorsports this weekend, will start from last-place in the AdventHealth 400, after an incident in practice forced the team to not make an attempt in qualifying.
With just 36 cars entered in the event, there will be no drivers heading home prior to the green flag for the 12th event of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season.
