Edwards on Pole for Sunday’s Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at the Glen

2010 Watkins Glen Aug NSCS qualifying Carl Edwards cup Who is ready for some road course racing? On Sunday the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will make its second and final stop at a road course. This weekend its the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at the Glen.

Starting from the pole will be Roush Fenway Racing’s Carl Edwards, who qualified with a lap of 70.882 seconds (124.432 mph). This is Edwards' first pole of the 2010 season and the fifth of his career. In 25 races held at Watkins Glen, the winner has started from the pole nine time. Joining Edwards on the front row is Jamie McMurray.

If you don’t see your favorite driver’s name listed in the starting lineup, it’s probably because he has been replaced for the weekend by a “road course ringer.” Several of these so-called “ringers” join the list of usual suspects.

The green flag is scheduled for 1:18 p.m. ET on ESPN.
