TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Kasey Kahne has won the pole at Talladega Superspeedway, the fourth race in NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Kahne's lap of 191.455 mph earned him the top starting spot for Sunday's race. Ryan Newman qualified second with a lap at 191.145, giving Chevrolet a sweep of the front row.
Two-time defending race winner Clint Bowyer qualified third and was surprised by the strong run. He said he expected to qualify poorly, and the good starting spot will force him to change his race strategy.
Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart qualified fourth, and Greg Biffle was fifth to put four Chase drivers in the top five.
Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Trevor Bayne, Martin Truex Jr. and Sam Hornish Jr. rounded out the top 10.
