Hamlin earns pole for NASCAR Clash in Los Angeles
Denny Hamlin had the fastest average speed in practice and secured the pole position for the Clash. The race was originally scheduled for Sunday but was moved to Saturday due to severe weather. Joey Logano will join Hamlin on the front row after winning the inaugural Clash in 2022. Other top drivers in the starting lineup include Ty Gibbs, Alex Bowman, and Kyle Busch. Martin Truex Jr., last year’s Clash winner, will start 19th. Several notable drivers, such as Christopher Bell and Daniel Suarez, did not advance to the main event.
