Kahne Picks Up Right Where He Left Off; On Pole at Sonoma

SONOMA, Calif. -- -- Last years Sonoma winner, Kasey Kahne, has won the pole at Infineon Raceway by knocking four-time series champion Jimmie Johnson from the top spot.
Kahne will be attempting to defend last year's victory in Sunday's race on the road course. He turned a lap of 93.893 mph around the 10-turn winding course.
Johnson typically struggles on road courses, but qualified second with a speed of 93.809 mph.
Kurt Busch qualified third and was followed by Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon and Marcos Ambrose, whom many consider the darkhorse pick to win Sunday's race.
Tony Stewart rebounded from a terrible practice session to qualify seventh, while Bobby Labonte, Greg Biffle and Martin Truex Jr. rounded out the top 10.
