Kasey Kahne
Kasey Kahne turned the fastest lap in Friday's qualifying session to earn the top spot for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series CARFAX 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

Kahne, who announced earlier this week he would join Team Red Bull for the 2011 season, toured the two-mile track with a lap of 187.183 mph to take his second pole of the season.

"We were good the last time we were here in June," said Kahne who finished second behind Denny Hamlin two months ago at Michigan. "We have speed again and a good car so hopefully that will translate into a good day on Sunday."

Jimmie Johnson will start outside the front row with Clint Bowyer, last week's Watkins Glen winner Juan Pablo Montoya and Greg Biffle rounding out the top five.

Matt Kenseth, series point leader Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex, Jr., Paul Menard and Jeff Burton completed the first ten qualifiers.

Three drivers failed to qualify for the race: Scott Riggs, Casey Mears and J.J. Yeley.

Sunday's CARFAX 400 is slated to take the green flag at 1:15 p.m. ET.
