Alex Bowman qualified on his 3rd career pole for the Daytona 500.

What’s Happening?

During Wednesday night’s single-car qualifying, Alex Bowman ran away with history. While his pole-winning lap was almost 2-tenths faster than Kyle Larson’s, it isn’t the speed that had everyone talking. Bowman’s 3rd career Daytona 500 pole is also his 6th consecutive front row start. For his team, Hendrick Motorsports has now won 8 of the last 9 poles for the Great American Race. For his manufacturer, Chevy has been the polesitter for the race every year since 2012 when Carl Edwards lead the field to green in a Ford.

What you need to know:

  • Alex Bowman won the pole for the 2023 Daytona 500.
  • The pole extends his front row start streak to 6 consecutive races and continues Hendrick’s dominance in 500 qualifying.
  • Despite the recent qualifying success, Bowman, Hendrick, and even Chevy have rarely seen it payoff in the race but they will be the first to tell you their confidence is high. Like the old adage goes, “you can’t lead every lap if you don’t start upfront.”
