CONCORD, NC - Brad Keselowski earned the pole for NASCAR's longest race with a lap of 192.089 mph on Thursday night.
Keselowski took advantage of cooler track conditions later in qualifying at Charlotte Motor Speedway to earn his second career Sprint Cup pole. AJ Allmendinger (191.693 mph) will join him on the front row for Sunday night's Coca-Cola 600.
Carl Edwards, who won last week's All-Star race then wrecked his car in a celebration mishap in the grass, qualified third in his new car. Denny Hamlin, Jeff Burton and Jimmie Johnson rounded out the top six.
Unadilla's David Ragan qualified 8th in his UPS Ford. Ragan won the Sprint Showdown race last weekend to earn a berth in the All-Star race, where he finished 8th.
Kyle Busch, who earlier in the day apologized again for driving what a police officer clocked as 128 mph in a 45 mph zone this week, turned in a lap of 189.440 mph and will start 21st.
