Kasey Kahne grabbed the Bud pole for the Stacker 200 Saturday at Dover International Speedway. It marks Kahne's second consecutive pole (he also started in the top spot at Richmond), and second of his Busch series career.

"The laps were really good, we got through the corner awesome in that car," said Kahne. "We are pretty excited to get two poles in a row. The Busch car has been good lately; we have pretty much been in the top ten. It has been good.

"These guys have been getting better and better as the year goes on."

Point leader Martin Truex, Jr. was second. Currently, Truex leads series standings by 105 markers over the field.

"We would have like to get the pole, but we were just a tick off," Truex said. "We'll take it. It is still a really good starting spot for us. I am looking forward to the race."

Mike McLaughlin, Kyle Busch and Kenny Wallace complete the top five.

"It feels great to get a top five start," commented Wallace. "To start the Stacker 2 Chevy fifth in the Stacker 200 is a great accomplishment for us."

Qualifying was slowed twice, once due to a crash by the No. 40 Chevy of Matt Kobyluck, and the second time when the No. 51 Chevy of Kenny Hendrick lost an engine on his first lap and spilled fluid onto the racetrack.

Forty-eight cars attempted to qualify for the forty-three car field, failing to make the show were Morgan Shepard, Dion Cicarelli, Stan Boyd, Matt Kobyluck and Bill Hoff.
