CONCORD, N.C. (AP) Matt Kenseth is back in a familiar spot at Charlotte Motor Speedway - sitting on the pole.

Kenseth will start up front Saturday night in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race after turning a lap at 194.532 mph Thursday night to edge Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch.

Kenseth also won the pole at the track in May for the Coca-Cola 600. He likes to joke that he doesn't qualify well, but this will be the fourth time he has started on the pole this season and the 17th time in his career.
