For the second week in a row, Kevin Harvick will start his Stewart-Haas No. 4 from the number one starting position.

Harvick was fastest in Friday’s qualifying for Sunday’s USA 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This is the first time in Harvick’s career that he has earned back-to-back poles as he was also fastest last week at Bristol.

Brad Keselowski will start alongside Harvick on the front row. Rookie Kyle Larson, Ryan Newman and Matt Kenseth round out the top five starters. Here is the complete starting lineup.

Tony Stewart returned to the track after missing the last three races due to the tragedy involving the death of Kevin Ward, Jr. during a dirt sprint car race on August 9th at Canandaigua Motorsports Park. Stewart qualified 12th for Sunday’s race at Atlanta.

In local racing Friday night, track champion Brett Hearn picked up another modified feature event victory at Albany-Saratoga Speedway. Kenny Tremont , Marc Johnson, Peter Britten and Matt Delorenzo completed the top five. Jon Miller won the Sportsman feature and Byron Wescott took the Pro-Stock win. Stewart Friesen won the modified feature at the Glen Ridge Motorsports Park.
