Carl Edwards was able to narrowly edge out Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski for the pole. Edwards lap was 130.928 mph. This pole is the 19th in Edwards’ NASCAR Nationwide Series career, and he says starting up front will be the key to victory.
“The biggest thing is if it’s a top-two, top-three starting spot, you get a great pit stall. That’s the key here. I have won this race before, and the last time I won it was because I had a good pit stop that got me off pit road first,” Edwards said.
As I said he just edged Kyle Busch out who was just .071 of a second behind, and Brad Keselowski, who qualified third, was just .081 of a second behind.
Greg Biffle qualified fourth, and Paul Menard continues his all around great season with a fifth place qualifying effort.
Nationwide Series rookie of the year candidate Colin Braun, who has been caught up in several accidents as of late, got a much needed eighth-place starting spot.
