Qualifying for the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis was dominated by Kevin Harvick which allowed him to achieve his fourth pole position of the season.
The drover managed to get the top time in all three sections of the qualifying with the 47.753 seconds time he achieved early on in the final session proving to be the best time that no one else would be able to beat. The only other driver that even got under 48 seconds was Jeff Gordon. This means that the two Chevrolets will be together in the front row. It did look as though the second position might go to Brad Keselowski but he was beaten by Gordon. In fourth place was Ryan Newman, who won the race last year and then Brian Vickers, Toby Stewart and Kurt Busch. In eighth place was Juan Pablo Montoya who was only taken place in his second race of the season. Then in ninth is Joey Logano then Kasey Kahne.
On row six will be Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch with Matt Kenseth, Danica Patrick and Kyle Larson behind. Then Clint Bowyer, Austin Dillon, Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle and Trevor Bayne make up the top twenty places.
Three drivers did not qualify, Brett Moffitt, David Stremme, and Matt Crafton.
It is expected to be an exciting race with drivers having had a week off and so should be raring to go, fresh and energetic. It will be interesting to see whether this shakes things up at all, although there were no big surprises in qualifying. The race is considered by some to be one of the best ones of the season and so it will be worth tuning in to find out how all of the drivers fare in it and who manages to cross the line first.
