Matt Kenseth followed up his Daytona 500 victory by winning the pole for Saturday night's Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway. Kenseth, the current points leader, turned a lap at 192.386 mph for his first pole in 26 starts at Daytona. The Roush Fenway Racing driver also claimed his eighth career Sprint Cup pole. Tony Stewart posted the second fastest lap in qualifying at 192.361 mph, which was 0.006 seconds behind Kenseth, but Stewart's time was disallowed after NASCAR officials discovered an illegal cooling hose on his No. 14 Chevrolet during post-qualifying inspection. Penalties could be forthcoming to Stewart's team next week. Stewart's teammate, Ryan Newman, finished third in qualifying, but Newman has moved up to the outside pole. Kasey Kahne will start third, followed by Greg Biffle and Jeff Gordon.
