Kasey Kahne
Kasey Kahne put his Budweiser Ford on pole for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway.  Transparently, the headquarters’ of Budweiser is in nearby St. Louis and they are sure to have a lot of guests at the race so having the Budweiser car on pole is the perfect scenario.  Paul Menard will start 2nd making it an all-Ford front row. 

Kahne turned a lap at 174.644 mph in his Ford during Friday's qualifying session.  Richard Petty Motorsports teammate Paul Menard's lap was 174.469.

Jeff Gordon qualified third at 174.430 in his DuPont Chevrolet. He is the highest qualifying driver in the Chase field.

Joey Logano was fourth in a Toyota, followed by Greg Biffle in a Ford, Ryan Newman in a Chevrolet and Juan Montoya in a Chevrolet.

Matt Kenseth qualified eighth in a Ford, Kurt Busch was the highest-qualifying Dodge at ninth and David Ragan rounded out the top 10 in a Ford.

Non-Chase drivers took six of the top 10 spots.
