''I think if you can win in a first round situation, you can definitely put yourself in a position to get those guys on the team that mental break that they're going to need just because of the detail and things that it takes on a weekly basis when you have to run all three weeks at that level,'' reigning Sprint Cup champion Kevin Harvick said.

    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.
