Cup - Indianapolis - Qualifying

David Ragan continues a strong July run with his second pole position of the month, to start alongside Kasey Kahne at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Brickyward 400.
Roush Fenway's David Ragan will start from pole position for Sunday's Brickyard 400 Cup race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, lining up on the front row alongside Red Bull Racing's Kasey Kahne.

It's Ragan's second career pole in 166 starts - and both of them have come this month, as has Ragan's breakthrough first win at Daytona. It's also Kahne's best start at the Brickyard in eight starts here.

With Roush Fenway's Rickey Stenhouse Jr. winning pole in the Nationwide Series race at nearby Lucas Oil Raceway, it's the first time that one team has claimed poles in both the Brickyard 400 and Kroger 200 on the same weekend.
