road course. He edged A.J. Almendinger, who’ll start second, with
Owen Kelly third.

Piquet Jr., Regan Smith, Brian Vickers, Sam Hornish Jr., Parker

Nationwide Series points leader Austin Dillon will start at the
back. He was unable to qualify because he is also replacing injured
Tony Stewart at the NASCAR race at Michigan International
