Kenseth wins pole at Richmond

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Matt Kenseth didn’t wait long to get his pole award back.

The Joe Gibbs Racing driver stripped of his award at Kansas in a raft of penalties levied by NASCAR, set a track record with a lap at 130.334 mph Friday at Richmond International Raceway.

Kenseth edged JGR teammate Brian Vickers by 0.005 seconds to claim only the 10th top starting position of his career in 481 starts. Vickers, who held the previous qualifying record at 129.983, is filling in for injured JGR driver Denny Hamlin.
