Aaron’s 499 - Talladega Superspeedway

Kyle Busch Wins Wild One at Talladega

Front Row Joe on Talladega Pole
Front Row Joe is living up to his nickname once again. In a position where he was forced to qualify on time, Joe Nemechek went out as the next-to-last car on the qualifying grid and knocked off Tony Stewart to win the Coors Light Pole Position for Sunday’s Aaron’s 499 at the Talladega Superspeedway. Nemechek clocked in with a lap of 51.103 seconds, at an average speed of 187.386 mph, to capture his 10th pole in 465 career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts. This is Nemechek’s fourth pole and 11th top-10 start in 27 races at Talladega. Stewart will start from the outside pole position after posting a qualifying lap of 51.237 seconds, at an average speed of 186.896 mph. This is Stewart’s fifth top-10 start in 2008 and his eighth top-10 start in 19 Talladega races. As the final car to qualify, Ken Schrader went out and qualified the No. 70 Haas-CNC Chevrolet in the third starting spot, while AJ Allmendinger, in his first race back behind the wheel of the No. 84 car, qualified in the fourth position. Kyle Busch will start fifth, netting his sixth top-10 start in 2008 and his second in seven Talladega races. Jon Wood, who will attempt to run the Truck race in Kansas later this evening, qualified for his second NASCAR Sprint Cup race. Patrick Carpentier, in 17th, was the fastest qualifying rookie and all five rookie candidates made the field.
