2014 Fontana (California): Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Qualifying Recap

Six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson led the way for Team Chevy in qualifying for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Auto Club Speedway with a third-place time of 38.516 (186.935 mph) in his No. 48 Lowe’s Spring is Calling Chevrolet SS.

As teams and drivers get accustomed to the new ‘knockout’ qualifying format, new strategies continue to emerge. Tire conservation and the changing of lines was the name of the game during today’s session. 43 entrants took to the track for the first session 25-minute session before the field was cut to the 24 fastest cars. Those 24 cars moved to round two and were given 10 minutes to post another fast lap. The fastest 12 drivers then moved on to the third and final five-minute session, where the fastest single laps determined the pole winner and starting lineup. Six Team Chevy drivers ended the day in the top 12.
