Carl Edwards
Carl Edwards covered the 0.533-mile oval of “Thunder Road” at Bristol in  14.989 seconds (128.014 mph) to score Roush Fenway’s third consecutive pole in 2011 and Edwards’ second pole in four races.

“It’s unreal,” said Edwards. “I sure hope it keeps going. This is a lot of fun. The guys at the shop have done a great job on this Scotts EZ Seed Ford Fusion. Greg (Biffle) motivated me, as I didn’t think he would get that fast of a lap. I could not hear (crew chief) Bob (Osborne) on the radio so I thought I must be slow on the first lap and I drove my guts out on the second lap. Finally I saw the board. Just really happy, this is really cool.”

Edwards will be joined on the front row by teammate Greg Biffle to give the field an all Roush Fenway front row for Sunday’s Jeff Byrd 500 on Sunday.

David Ragan gives Roush Fenway three cars in the top five, after qualifying fifth in the session. Matt Kenseth will start 11th based on his qualifying effort.

The pole is Roush Fenway’s 10th in Bristol Sprint Cup action at Bristol and its 15th overall at BMS.

Sunday’s race is set for 1:13 p.m. EDT and will be televised live on FOX.
