Geoff Burke/Getty Images for NASCAR(INDIANAPOLIS) — Kevin Harvick won the pole for Sunday’s Brickyard 400 on Saturday.

Harvick was followed by Jeff Gordon, and Brad Keselowski for the top three spots.

“I think that we certainly look at all the Hendrick cars and the Stewart-Haas cars … and Penske, to me, is the team to beat outside of what we have,” Gordon said. “I’m pretty sure all those groups have their best stuff here.”

Keselowski and Jimmie Johnson have three wins this season.

“When you think you really understand what’s going on, you never know what somebody else has in their hand — much like if you were playing a game of poker,” Keselowski said. “We think that we have the two strongest hands with Penske and Hendrick, and certainly that’s been the case to this date in the season, but you just don’t know what’s out there.”

Gordon is the points leader and has one win this season.

“To be on the front row, 20 years after my first win, I get excited about that,” Gordon said.

Indiana native Ryan Newman won last year at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
