Carl Edwards Tops Starting Lineup For NASCAR Race At Phoenix

Subway-sponsored driver Carl Edwards won the pole for Sunday's Subway Fresh Fit 500 race at Phoenix International Raceway, snatching the top spot from Kasey Kahne late in Saturday's qualifying session.

Kurt Busch was second and Kahne ended up third under NASCAR's new qualifying format, which puts the fastest cars from practice at the end of the session – allowing the pole to change hands many times.

Kyle Busch was fourth and Regan Smith was fifth, with Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr., Jamie McMurray, Brad Keselowski and Greg Biffle completing the top 10.

Brian Keselowski, the Cinderella story at Daytona, missed the race and was sent home. Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne qualified 33rd.
