Joining Busch’s No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota on the front row is Juan Pablo Montoya, who drives the No. 42 Target Chevrolet, owned by Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing. Kansas City-area driver Carl Edwards, from Columbia, Mo., will start seventh in tonight’s Quaker State 400 starting grid.
Edwards has won two previous NASCAR races at Kentucky Speedway: a Camping World Series event in 2003 and a Nationwide race in 2005.
