KANSAS CITY, Oct. 7, 2011: Greg Biffle turned a lap of 30.88 (174.887 mph) around the 1.5-mile tri-oval of Kansas Speedway in Friday afternoon’s qualifying session to earn the pole for Sunday’s 400-mile Sprint Cup race at the venue. Biffle will be joined on an all-Roush Fenway front row by teammate Carl Edwards who qualified second. Matt Kenseth will start just behind Edwards in fourth and David Ragan qualified 13th for the race.

“It was a really good lap for the Sherwin-Williams Ford,” said Biffle. “But I have to talk about how slow we were when we unloaded today and the job the team did to get in a position to be sitting here. We were 35th or so when we unloaded the car. That says so much about this team that we started there and ended up here on the pole. We didn’t lose our patience, focus or confidence. We kept making changes and working with the car and we went from there to being the fastest car.”
