Kyle Larson sweeps to Coors Light Pole at New Hampshire

Dale Earnhardt Jr. defends Martin Truex Jr. dominating NASCAR right now

Truex has the pole and Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Jamie McMurray and Kasey Kahne completed the top five.

However, more trouble awaited Larson and the No. 42 CGR team in post-qualifying technical inspection on Friday.

Martin Truex on the move in the series standings, now sitting at the top as former leader Kyle Larson and his team were docked 35 points for penalties after the recent race in Kentucky.

"Not the way we wanted to get our first pole of the year", Truex said. "It's really been a good race track for me on average throughout my career ... it's just been tough to put it all together to get the finishes".

What To Watch For: Martin Truex Jr. goes for his second straight win after sweeping the stages and leading a race-high 152 laps at Kentucky.

The company also has a licensing deal in place with TCL that allows the latter to sell Roku built-into select televisions. Roku has long offered an open system for media and entertainment apps such as Netflix, HBO Now and Amazon Prime Video.

On Wednesday, NASCAR announced that Larson's vehicle had failed post-race inspection because of a duct assembly issue.

Former Thunder Road "King of the Road" Nick Sweet is joined by Eric Chase and Pete Ainsworth in the preparation of reigning NASCAR Champion Kyle Busch's vehicle to be driven in Thursday's Vermont Governor's Cup race at Thunder Road in Barre. With eight races left before "The Chase", it is still possible he can make the final cut by winning one of the remaining races. CGR is not appealing the penalties. Kyle Busch starts eighth and Denny Hamlin ninth to give JGR three drivers in the top 10.

Denny Hamlin qualified ninth in his backup vehicle after crashing in practice.

The 78 had its best season in 2016. His previous best was 22nd at Atlanta Motor Speedway in February. The group previously had an alliance with Richard Childress Racing from 2010 to 2015 with Chevrolet as its manufacturer. Ryan Newman in 25th is the top-starting RCR driver, with teammates Austin Dillon 27th and Paul Menard 30th.

David Ragan forced the only stoppage in qualifying with a lazy spin in Turn 1, shortly after exiting the pits just two minutes into the first round. He did not damage his No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford and continued on to qualify 33rd.
