FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Stewart-Haas Racing drivers are starting in the top three spots at Texas Motor Speedway, with Kurt Busch on the pole and teammates Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer right behind him.

Harvick won in Texas last November and Bowyer is coming off a win at Martinsville in the last NASCAR Cup Series race two weeks ago, before the Easter break. That snapped a 190-race winless streak for Bowyer that went back to 2012.

Ryan Blaney starts fourth Sunday in the Cup race, a day after winning in the Xfinity Series on the 1½-mile track for Team Penske.

Jimmie Johnson has a 29-race winless streak, the longest in his career. He has won seven wins in Texas, five times more than any other active driver.
