Michael Annett qualified 39th for the Pennsylvania 400 at Pocono Raceway with a lap of 169.750 mph. That is more than nine miles per hour slower than pole sitter Martin Truex Jr. and he will likely be one of the first drivers lapped.

Kasey Kahne and Jeff Gordon will join Jimmie Johnson in the back half of the pack on Sunday at Pocono Raceway for the Pennsylvania 400. Kahne posted a lap of 175.901 mph and will roll off the grid 23rd; Gordon starts 24th with a lap of 175.706. Johnson starts just outside the top 20 in 21st.
