Jimmie Johnson will start from the pole Saturday night, but on track Friday it was all about Denny Hamlin. Six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Johnson, who won the event in 2005, was awarded pole for the Sprint Unlimited at Daytona International Speedway via a draw by his crew chief Chad Knaus.  Knaus put his driver in the number one starting spot for the 25 drivers entered in the annual all-star, non-points event.

Brad Keselowski will start second, AJ Allmendinger third with Kyle Larson and Ryan Newman rounding out the top five.
