David Gilliland will be on the pole for Saturday night's Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Raceway.
Rain eliminated the final two qualifying sessions, so the race lineup was determined by the results of the first session. Reed Sorenson, Landon Casill, Bobby Labonte and Jimmie Johnson will start 2nd through 5th. Emporian Clint Bowyer will start towards the back of the pack in the 34th position. Bowyer is currently 14th in the points standings in the Chase for the Cup. Jeff Gordon leads the points standings by 24 points over Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Kasey Kahne won the Nationwide Firecracker 250 Friday night. Kahne got a push from rookie Ryan Sieg on a green-white-checkered restart to move from 8th and slip by Regan Smith for the win.
