HAMPTON, Ga. – Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano won the pole for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway after a qualifying session in which 13 drivers didn't get on the track after failing to pass inspection.
Among those who didn't get to take a lap Friday evening: Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart.
At least they'll be in the race. That wasn't the case for Mike Wallace, Matt DiBenedetto, Michael Annett and Reed Sorenson, who were bumped out of the 43-car field without even getting a chance to qualify.
Logano led the final session of qualifying with a blistering lap of 194.683 mph, taking advantage of temperatures in the 40s as the sun set on the 1.54-mile trioval.
Kevin Harvick (193.782) will start alongside Logano on the front row.
