Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Tony Stewart could still fall out of the Chase if Brad Keselowski ousts one of them from the top ten places in the championship points, but Keselowski would need to finish over 20pts ahead of one them to achieve this. Keselowski starts from 19th, Stewart from 22nd and Earnhardt from 27th.
Mike Skinner, Erik Darnell and TJ Bell failed to qualify for the 43-car grid. Former F1 driver Scott Speed squeezed onto the grid in 41st place.
