Harvick grabs yet another pole with big run at IMS

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -

Kevin Harvick has won the pole for the Brickyard 400 with a dominating qualifying run at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Harvick was fastest in all three sessions of NASCAR's knockout qualifying, and bested Sprint Cup Series points leader Jeff Gordon for the top starting spot in Sunday's race.

Harvick turned a lap at 188.470 mph in the final round of Saturday qualifying to put his Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet on the front row. Gordon was second at 187.770.

Brad Keselowski was third and defending race winner Ryan Newman fourth to set the second row.

It's the fourth pole of the season for Harvick, who won the Brickyard in 2003.

Brian Vickers qualified fourth. Tony Stewart was fifth and followed by Kurt Busch as Stewart-Haas drivers took three of the top seven spots.
