After saving his best for last in the modified knockout qualifying system, Matt Kenseth will be on the pole when things get underway from Fontana on Sunday. Kenseth edged out Brad Keselowski for the top starting spot, but will be joined by Keselowski on the front fow of the Auto Club 400.
Kenseth ran well in all three stages of qualifying, finishing fourth and second during the first two rounds before finishing first and claiming the pole in the third round. With the nature of the track at Fontana, times typically get slower as laps build up, but a few drivers, including Kenseth, were able to post faster times later in qualifying.
