Kasey Kahne

Kasey Kahne topped Friday's Bud Pole qualifying session and grabbed his 14th career NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series pole in earning the top spot for the Sharpie 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway that will run Saturday night.

Kahne's lap of 16.016-seconds beat fellow Dodge driver Juan Pablo Montoya who qualified outside the front row with a lap of 16.064-seconds.

Jamie McMurray, David Ragan and Dave Blaney completed the first five qualifiers.

Carl Edwards, Ryan Newman, Ricky Rudd, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Burton rounded out the top ten.

David Reutimann, Sterling Marlin, Brian Vickers, Kevin Lepage and Stanton Barrett failed to make the race while the usual Sunday-off driver Jeremy Mayfield and AJ Allmendinger made the show this weekend.

Saturday night's Sharpie 500 will take the green flag at 8 p.m. (ET).
