Daytona, Jul. 7, 2012: Roush Fenway Racing continued its recent dominance at Daytona International Speedway, with Matt Kenseth taking pole for Saturday night's Coke Zero 400. He will look to become the first driver in 30 years to win both Sprint Cup events at DIS in the same season. Kenseth turned a fast lap of 46.78 (192.386 mph) around the 2.5-mile tri-oval to win the pole.

Greg Biffle qualified fifth for the Sprint Cup race, with Carl Edwards turning in the 13th fastest time. Roush Fenway driver Trevor Bayne – driving the No. 21 Wood Brothers’ Ford – qualified 16th for Saturday nights event.

This marks RFR’s fourth Sprint Cup pole in 2012. It was the organization’s fourth pole in Sprint Cup action at Daytona. Saturday night’s Coke Zero 400 is set for 7:30 p.m. and will be televised live on TNT.
