Juan Montoya
Where were those 201mph laps that the two Toyota cars (Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch) turned in Friday practice when it counted?  Maybe they were running Nitrous Oxide to get some free publicity.  In Saturday qualifying they both were nowhere and Juan Montoya put his Chip Ganassi Chevy on pole for the Amp Energy 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Talladega.  His speed was just 184.640 mph, way off the 201 mph lap on Friday.

Clint Bowyer will start 2nd, also in a Chevy. Kurt Busch Joe Nemechek and Jeff Burton round out the top-5.

Points leader Jimmie Johnson will start way back in 19th and Kyle Busch, who ran 201 on Friday will start 32nd with a speed of 182.365 mph, 19 mph slower than Friday.
