Kasey Kahne has turned a lap of 187.183 mph, qualifying on the pole for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway.
It is Kahne's second pole of the season and the 18th of his
Jimmie Johnson qualified second, followed by Clint Bowyer, Tony
Stewart and Juan Pablo Montoya.
It has been a big week for Kahne, who currently drives for
Richard Petty Motorsports but has signed a contract with Hendrick
Motorsports. Because Hendrick doesn't have a seat open in 2011, it
was announced this week that Kahne will drive for Red Bull Racing
