Cup - Charlotte - Qualifying times

Tony Stewart put the #14 back on pole position at Charlotte Motor Speedway ahead of Matt Kenseth ahead of Saturday night's Bank of America 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race.
Tony Stewart's time of 28.131s - an average speed of 191.959mph on the 1.5-mile quad oval - was fast enough to claim pole position for this weekend's Sprint Cup race at Charlotte Motor Speedway

Matt Kenseth will start alongside him on the front row and Carl Edwards from third. Stewart's team mate Ryan Newman (sixth) and a resurgent Jimmie Johnson (ninth) were the only other Chase drivers in the top ten.

Geoffrey Bodine, Scott Speed, Josh Wise failed to qualify after Hermie Sadler and Mike Bliss made the 43-car field based on car owner points.
