A new Kansas Speedway track surface, a new NSCS Gen-6 car equaled a new series qualifying track record, as Matt Kenseth, with a qualifying lap speed of 191.864 mph, captured the STP 400 Coors Light Pole Award.

Kenseth, who broke Kasey Kahne’s 10/21/12 speed of 191.360 mph, received his first series pole of the 2013 season, his ninth series career pole and his series pole at Kansas Speedway.
