Jimmie Johnson was close on his heels with a 20.009 second lap. Clint Bowyer was third quickest running 20.069 seconds. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was next fastest at 20.104 and Jamie McMurray rounded out the top five running a lap of 20.109 seconds.

The rest of the top 10 included Denny Hamlin 6th, Carl Edwards 7th, Juan Pablo Montoya 8th, Martin Truex Jr. 9th and AJ Allmendinger 10th.

The rest of the Chase contenders were scattered throughout the rundown with Kevin Harvick 11th, Tony Stewart 14th, Kyle Busch 24th, Matt Kenseth 26th, Greg Biffle 28th and Jeff Burton 31st.
