Kenseth Quick In Kansas

24969Jpg
KANSAS CITY - Matt Kenseth will lead the field to the green flag for the second time this season after he captured the pole for Sunday's Banquet 400 at Kansas Speedway.

And if he duplicates his race effort after his last pole win, the rest of Sunday's Banquet 400 field is in trouble.

Kenseth took the top spot and then went on to dominate the Sharpie 500 at Bristol last August. The Roush Racing driver looks to turn in a repeat performance here tomorrow.

Kenseth's lap of 180.856 mph broke the previous track record set by Jimmie Johnson in 2003. It was his third career NEXTEL Cup pole.

"These impound races really help us because we are always better in race trim than in qualifying," Kenseth said. "When I came to the green, my car was stuck pretty good. I ran that first lap and it was quick. We've had good cars lately and it's a lot of fun to drive them. I think we have a car that is very competitive for the race."

Last week's Talladega pole winner Elliott Sadler qualified second at 180.717 mph. Jeff Gordon, Scott Wimmer and Carl Edwards rounded out the Top 5.

Kevin Lepage stunned the field by qualifying sixth with Denny Hamlin, Greg Biffle, Tony Stewart and Kurt Busch completing the first ten qualifiers.

Robby Gordon, Carl Long, Wayne Anderson, Tony Raines, Eric McClure and Greg Sacks did not qualify for Sunday's race.


The Banquet 400 will take the green flag Sunday afternoon at 2:10 p.m. (ET) and be televised live by NBC.
