Track Drying

BRAD KESELOWSKI/No.22 Ford is this weekend’s overachiever … so far, after capturing the pole position for the NASCAR Nationwide Series 10th Annual Blue Jeans Go Green 200 Prersented by Cotton, The Fabric of Our Lives, he went out and repeated himself by taking the Pole Position for the Blue Jeans Go Geen 200 presented by Cotton NASCAR Nationwide Series Race.. His fast lap was 134.053 mph/26.855 seconds.

Both qualifying sessions were completed before the forecast fifty percent chance of rain started at 11am. It was more of a spritz, but it did bring out the dryers and track vehicles.

There were thirty-nine drivers for the 43-car field, so no one will go home. Twelve drivers advanced to the second round

The top twelve drivers were Keselowski; BRIAN SCOTT/No.2 Chevrolet; KYLE BUSCH/No.54 Toyota; MATT KENSETH/No.20 Toyota; Rookie TY DILLON/No.3 Chevrolet; ELLIOTT SADLER/No.11 Toyota; KEVIN HARVICK/No.88 Chevrolet; REGAN SMITH/No.7 Chevrolet; KYLE LARSON/No.42 Chevrolet; TREVOR BAYNE/No.6 Ford; Rookie CHASE ELLIOTT/No.9 Chevrolet; and Rookie CHRIS BUESCHER/No.60 Ford.

Five of the top twelve are Cup drivers. The top Rookie was Elliott, starting eleventh.

Due to rain possibilities, the actual NNS race start has been moved up to 1:47 pm, local time, rather than the originally scheduled 2pm.

CARLOS CONTRERAS/No.23 Chevrolet starts thirty-eighth. Friday night he was a car owner in the NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series, with PATRICK GOETERS/No.14 as his driver. Patrick finished seventh. His brother, JORGE, finished ninth.
