NASCAR Sprint Showdown Starting Lineup: David Ragan On Pole

In Saturday night's Sprint Showdown – the last-chance qualifying race for the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race – there will be two transfer spots up for grabs.

The Fords of David Ragan and AJ Allmendinger will get the head start in the 40-lap event, as they qualified on the Showdown's pole and outside pole positions, respectively, on Friday afternoon.

"We've struggled a little bit and haven't gotten the finishes we wanted, but this is our kind of racetrack," Ragan said. "...Our car is fast enough, we've just got to put ourselves in the right position."

Paul Menard, Brad Keselowski and Jeff Burton rounded out the top five, with fan favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. starting 13th.

The Showdown, which will have two 20-lap segments, takes the top two drivers and puts them into the All-Star Race, along with the winner of a fan vote.

On Friday, Sprint announced the top five of the fan vote (in alphabetical order) as: Allmendinger, Earnhardt Jr., Bobby Labonte, Joey Logano and Brian Vickers.
