Jeff Burton will start second on the outside of the front row, with Amirola's Richard Petty Motorsports teammate Marcos Ambrose slotted third.

Matt Kenseth, the current leader in the Chase Sprint for the Sprint Cup standings, will 12th, one spot behind Jimmie Johnson, who trails Kenseth by four points.
