Kenseth qualifies on pole at Kansas Speedway

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Matt Kenseth took the pole Sunday at one of his favorite places after setting a track qualifying record of 191.864 mph at Kansas Speedway.

Kenseth won the fall race at Kansas last season, and hasn't finished outside the top 10 since having engine trouble in the 2009 race. He has finished in the top five at Kansas five times.

Carl Edwards will start on the front row for the first time at Kansas after qualifying second with a lap of 191.748. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. qualified third.

Joey Logano will start 22nd and Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski will go off 33rd. Both drivers arrived at Kansas with their full teams after appealing heavy sanctions handed down by NASCAR for bringing unapproved parts to last weekend's race at Texas.

Jeff Gordon crashed between turns 1 and 2 during his qualifying run.
