2014 Phoenix: Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Qualifying Recap

Jamie McMurray led the way Friday for Team Chevy in qualifying for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Phoenix International Raceway with a third-place time of 26.021 (138.969 mph) in his No. 1 Cessna/Bad Boy Buggies Chevrolet SS.

The session marked the debut of a new knockout-style qualifying format where all 46 entrants had a 30-minute session to make a lap before the fastest 12 drivers were given a second chance to post the best time in a final 10-minute session.

Six-time Sprint Cup champion, Jimmie Johnson in his No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet SS, was fourth-fastest in the final session. Last week’s Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt Jr., qualified fifth in his No. 88 National Guard Chevrolet SS to give Team Chevy three of the top five starting spots in The Profit on CNBC 500 presented by Small Business Fueling America.

Also among the top dozen in the new qualifying procedure were three other Team Chevy drivers. Rookie Kyle Larson, behind the wheel of his No. 42 Clorox Chevrolet SS qualified seventh; Kurt Busch in his No. 41 Haas Automation Chevy SS was 10th and Kasey Kahne qualified 11th in his No. 5 Farmers Insurance Chevrolet SS. In all, Team Chevy occupies six of the first 12 starting positions.

Brad Keselowski (Ford) won the pole position and Joey Logano (Ford) qualified second to round out the top five starters.

The Profit on CNBC 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race takes the green flag at 3:00 p.m. ET on Sunday and will air live on FOX.
