CONCORD, N.C. -- Chase Elliott will lead all Hendrick Motorsports drivers at the beginning of Saturday's race at Pocono with a fifth-place start.

Alex Bowman will follow in 10th, Jimmie Johnson will roll off the grid in 12th and William Byron will start in 16th.

The starting lineup was set through a drawing based on the drivers' current Cup Series standings that include all 13 completed races so far this season.

The second Pocono race set for Sunday will be determined by the finishing order of Saturday's race. The first 20 finishers will have their positions inverted and the latter 20 will start in their Saturday finishing positions. 

 Aric Almirola secured the pole position.

The race at Pocono will be Saturday, June 27 at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
