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
Penske Racing teammates Kurt Busch and Brad Keselowski qualified fourth and fifth for Sunday's race.
AJ Allmendinger, Juan Pablo Montoya, Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth
and Carl Edwards rounded out the top 10.
