Edwards, coming off a second-place finish at the Daytona 500, ran a lap of 137.279 mph to barely edge Kurt Busch on the final qualifying session before the track is repaved.
On a cloudy, cool day in the desert, 15 drivers eclipsed the old qualifying record of 136.389 mph, set by Edwards on his way to winning last fall. Kasey Kahne qualified third and Kyle Busch will start next to him for Sunday's 500-mile race around the crack-filled mile oval.
