First Pole For Edwards

24434Jpg
FONTANA, Calif. - Carl Edwards led the Roush Racing brigade in qualifying for Sunday's Sony HD 500 at California Speedway as the team swept the top-four starting positions.

Edwards knocked Mark Martin off the top of the charts with a lap of 185.061 mph good enough for his first career Bud Pole.

Kurt Busch and Greg Biffle, who won at California in February, will start third and fourth, respectively.

Hendrick Motorsports teammates of Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon scored the next two starting positions with Kasey Kahne, J.J. Yeley, Brian Vickers and Scott Riggs rounding out the top 10.

Last week's winner Matt Kenseth was the lone Roush car to qualify outside of the top five. He will start 23rd.

Jon Wood qualified Ricky Rudd's No. 21 Ford with a lap of 179.816 mph placing him 39th on the grid. Rudd, who was attending the funeral of his father Al Rudd Sr., is expected to return to make his 777 consecutive start.

Sunday's Sony HD 500 will take the green flag at 8:00 p.m. (ET).
