INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - David Ragan has won the pole for the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Ragan was one of the last drivers to make a qualifying run Saturday and turned a lap at 182.994 mph to bump Jimmie Johnson from the pole. It is the second pole of Ragan's career. The other came at Texas in April.
Kasey Kahne then made his qualifying run and his lap of 182.927 grabbed the second spot. Johnson dropped to third after holding down the top spot on the leaderboard for most of the qualifying session.

AJ Allmendinger, Juan Pablo Montoya, Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards rounded out the top 10.
