Chase Elliott, who scored his first career NASCAR Cup win at Watkins Glen International last year, definitely still knows his way around the tricky road course.

On Saturday afternoon, the Hendrick Motorsports driver claimed the pole for Sunday's GoBowling at the Glen.

Elliott will have a familiar face starting alongside him on the front row, with William Byron qualifying second in the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet.

Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Larson rounded out the top five on the grid.

It's Elliott's third pole this season and the seventh of his career. Elliott's pole, of course, is contingent on his car passing inspection Sunday morning.

Sunday’s GoBowling at The Glen begins at 3 p.m. ET.
