Aric Almirola has claimed the pole for Sunday’s running of the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Joining Almirola’s No. 10  Ford Mustang on the front row for the first race with the 2019 aero package will be another Mustang in the No. 17 of Ricky Stenhouse Jr..

Notables who failed to make it out of the first round of qualifying include Ryan Blaney, Joey Logano and Bubba Wallace who will all start near the back of the pack.
