Cup - Atlanta - Qualifying times

Red Bull Racing put both drivers onto the front two rows at Atlanta Motor Speedway, with Kasey Kahne claiming pole ahead of Clint Bowyer, Kyle Busch and team mate Brian Vickers.
A strong qualifying session for Red Bull Racing saw them put Kasey Kahne into pole position for the second time this season, where he will start alongside Chase hopeful Clint Bowyer on the front row of the grid for the AdvoCare 500 night race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Bowyer just clinched second place ahead of Kyle Busch by just 0.013s in one of the final runs of the session. Busch will start alongside Kahne's Red Bull team mate Brian Vickers on the second row, with Jeff Gordon and Matt Kenseth making up the third row.

Weather for Sunday evening's race is a concern as the remains of Tropical Storm Lee are currently forecast to pass through the region and could lead to a wash-out.
