NASCAR At Pocono 2012 Starting Lineup: Joey Logano Leads The Field

Joey Logano will lead 43 cars to the green flag on Sunday after posting a track-record speed of 179.598 mph during qualifying. Pocono's reconfigured track surface led to much faster qualifying numbers as the top 36 racers that qualified all broke the old track record.

Carl Edwards qualified second and is joined by Paul Menard, Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin in the top five. Dale Earnhardt Jr. starts eighth and points leader Greg Biffle starts back in the 13th position.
