Harvick ran a fast lap of 177.730 in the final round, sweeping all three segments of qualifying. Harvick had long said his team's switch to Ford racers this year would take some adjustment.

Redskins safety Su'a Cravens has been placed on the exempt/left squad list amid reports he has been considering retirement.
