Long live the KING! Almirola gets the pole at Charlotte
The most Iconic of the NASCAR car numbers is 43 not 3 . Sorry, Keith Ledger wasn't the greatest "Joker" either. After a long dry spell for the Richard Petty racing team with Driver Aric Almirola win the Pole for the Coca a Cola 600. With a lap at speeds at 192.+ and 191+ mph, wins the number 43 Ford (Petty racing team) its 122nd Pole. BTW the King himself won a 112 of those pole positions. Jimmie Johnson with 2 back to back wins takes 3rd and the ever beautiful Danica way back, to the 43 position.
