KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Matt Kenseth joined Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards in a Joe Gibbs Racing sweep of the top three spots in qualifying Friday for the Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway.
Kenseth turned a lap of 192.089 mph to start on the pole Sunday at a track where he has won twice before, beating his teammate by a thousandth of a second. Busch will start alongside him with Edwards, the final driver to make a run in the last round of qualifying, starting third.
