Matt Kenseth once said all he wanted to do was win one pole a year. Kenseth outdid himself as he won his second pole of the season Thursday night and will lead the field to the green for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“I think starting in front is important,” Kenseth said. “The track typically always goes through changes here, especially if the sun is out from the beginning of the race to the end of the race. You want to have good track position, good pit selection and all those things. If you do get a little off and you’re chasing the setup a little with the track changing, you have a little bit of buffer being toward the front hopefully. Track position is always important, you always want to start as far forward as you can.”
It was the 15th pole of his career and his first at Charlotte Motor Speedway.MORE>>>
