2014 Bristol: Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Qualifying Recap

Four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon led the way for Team Chevy in qualifying for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway with a sixth-place time of 14.962 (128.245 mph) in his No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS.

This was the first time the new 'knockout' qualifying format for short-tracks was used at Bristol. All the cars were on track during a 30-minute first session, with the fastest 12 advancing to the second and final 10-minute round. The qualifying session was extremely close with the top 36 qualifiers separated by only four tenths of a second.

Three-time Bristol pole sitter Ryan Newman in his No. 31 Quicken Loans Billon Dollar Bracket Challenge Chevrolet SS was ninth fastest in the final session. Kasey Kahne, who earned his first career Bristol victory one year ago placed his No. 5 Farmers Insurance Chevrolet SS in the 10th starting spot. He was followed by Hendrick Motorsports teammate and six-time Sprint Cup champion, Jimmie Johnson in his No. 48 KOBALT Tools Chevrolet SS, who ended the session 11th.
