DARLINGTON, SC – Denny Hamlin claimed the Coors Light Pole Award for today’s NASCAR XFINITY Series VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 at Darlington Raceway, his fourth pole of the 2015 season.

Hamlin posted a 171.704 mph lap and will lead the field of 40 cars to the green flag. Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, Daniel Suarez posted the second fastest lap of the final round and will start second. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regulars Kyle Larson, Joey Logano and Paul Menard round out the top-five.

A costly blend line penalty for Kyle Busch, handed down by NASCAR for prematurely driving above the apron during his official qualifying lap, prevented the former series champion’s advancement to the second round. Busch, who was one of the fastest cars in NASCAR XFINITY Series practice yesterday, will be forced to start 36th this afternoon.

Today’s 174-lap VFW Sport Clips Help A Hero 200 will broadcast live on NBC at 3:30 p.m. ET this afternoon.
