Brad Keselowski will lead the field to green Saturday night after turning a lap of 155.447 mph around concrete oval. Keselowski, one of two Sprint Cup regulars which chose to run on a Sprint Cup off weekend, beat out Nationwide regular Steve Wallace to earn his second pole of the 2011 Nationwide season.

“These guys have been working really hard and have been making a lot of progress over the last few weeks,” Keselowski said. “It’s a long race tonight. Hopefully, we can avoid some mistakes and get in victory lane.”

Carl Edwards, who won the April race at Nashville, will start in the third position. Trailing Edwards was last night’s winner Austin Dillon and points leader Elliott Sadler.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Trevor Bayne, Sam Hornish Jr., Kenny Wallace and Brian Scott rounded out the top 10.

Brett Rowe was the only driver which failed to qualify.
