When the "Super Bowl" of NASCAR racing unfolds Sunday afternoon, David Gilliland will be on the pole after winning it last Sunday for the second pole of his career.
The field for the 49th running of the race also includes Jeff Burton, Clint Bowyer, Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr., Michael Waltrip and Casey Mears, as well as Ken Schrader, Sterling Marlin, Johnny Sauter, David Reutimann, Dale Jarrett, David Stremme, Matt Kenseth, J.J. Yeley, Carl Edwards, Joe Nemechek, Tony Raines and Ryan Newman.
Waltrip was required to use a back-up car after his Toyota was cited for major rules violations this week. He offered an apology before Thursday's runs.
