NASCAR tweaked its racing schedule for the playoffs. Last year, Chicago hosted the first Monster Energy Series round of 16 event. Las Vegas gets the honors in 2018. It also marks the track's second event of the year after Kevin Harvick won the Pennzoil 400 in March.
Jones, who begins the playoffs in 10th place in the standings and 45 points off the lead, is chasing his second victory of the year. He came all the way from the 29th position to win at Daytona in July.
Taking part in the postseason for the first time in his young career, Jones admitted prior to qualifying he was still adjusting to the added pressure.
“Making sure you’re doing everything you need to do to be locked in and riding, ready to go," Jones told NBC’s Dave Burns (via NBC Sports' Dan Beaver). "There’s so many things you … can’t control, but you want to do everything in your power to make sure you’re doing the right thing.”
Logano understands that pressure after finishing second in the standings in 2016. He came within an eyelash of catching Jones with a lap time of 28.708 seconds, just .003 seconds behind the lead.
Las Vegas has historically been a good track for Logano. The 28-year-old has finished in the top 10 at five straight races on this track.
Not far behind the front-row pairing will be points leaders Kyle Busch and Harvick. The duo qualified fourth and fifth, respectively, as they look to create separation from each other. They are currently tied with 2,050 points, but Harvick's seven wins this year lead the Monster Energy circuit.
With the starting grid set, all 40 drivers in the field will turn their attention toward race day Sunday at 3 p.m. ET.
