Kevin Harvick was second and will also start on the front row.

Points leader Kyle Bush was fourth and will be on row two.

In the first race of the tripleheader weekend, Johnny Sauter won Friday’s Camping World Truck Series “JEGS 200.”   It’s his second straight win at Dover and 19th career Truck Series victory.

And race officials have moved the start time for Saturday’s Xfinity series “OneMain Financial 200” up an hour to 1:30pm because eof the threat of inclement weather later in the day.
