For the second week in row, the same two cars will lead the field to the green for NASCAR’s Sprint Cup race Sunday. Carl Edwards won the pole for the Crown Royal 400 Saturday with Joey Logano securing the second place starting spot.  Edwards won the pole last week at New Hampshire, Logano started second.

The biggest drama Saturday came from hometown hero Tony Stewart. Stewart, who has been struggling all season long, won the first of two rounds of qualifying to the roars of approval from the crowd.  He went out last in the final round and came up just short of winning the pole, but will still have a decent starting spot, fourth on Sunday.

“Tony (Stewart) had me nervous – he was so fast in that first round,” Edwards said. MORE>>>
