Carl Edwards is on the pole for Saturday's Sprint All-Star race. This qualifying was different as drivers had to make a four tire stop during the course of the qualifying run. Many drivers were faced with five-second penalties due to lugnut issues. Edwards had a speed of 145.556 mph and will start from the front alongside Kurt Busch. Both drivers are past winners of the event. Edwards is paying tribute to former driver Dick Trickle, who passed away on Thursday, by running his name above the window. 

Kevin Harvick's time was disallowed due to pitting outside the box during his qualifying run. Harvick will start from the back of the field.

Here’s the Sprint All-Star lineup:

  1. Carl Edwards
  2. Kurt Busch
  3. Greg Biffle
  4. Kyle Busch
  5. Joey Logano
  6. Clint Bowyer
  7. Denny Hamlin
  8. Mark Martin
  9. Kasey Kahne
  10. Jeff Gordon
  11. Ryan Newman
  12. Brad Keselowski
  13. Tony Stewart
  14. David Ragan
  15. Dale Earnhardt Jr.
  16. Matt Kenseth
  17. Marcos Ambrose
  18. Jimmie Johnson
  19. Kevin Harvick

The first and second place finishers from the Sprint Showdown and the winner of the fan vote will also compete in the All-Star Race Saturday night.
