Carl Edwards will start from the pole position in his No. 60 Ortho Ford for tonight's Dollar General 300. He captured his third pole in 10 races at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  His lap of 183.798 mph was enough to hold off Roush Fenway Racing teammate Matt Kenseth in the No. 16 Citifinancial Ford, who will join him on the front row for the NASCAR Nationwide Series race.

Justin Allgaier will start from the second row in the No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge alongside David Gilliland in the No. 1 Miccosukee Indian Gaming & Resort Chevrolet. Kyle Busch and Erik Darnell will roll off from the third row. A full starting lineup is available online.
