None of the three Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Camrys made the final round of qualifying for Sunday’s KOBALT 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, as Kyle Busch led the crew with a disappointing 20th starting position.

Las Vegas native Busch was the only JGR driver to make it to the second round of 24 in his No. 18 M&Ms Toyota, qualifying at a speed of 191.381 mph (28.216 seconds) to start outside Row 10. Denny Hamlin qualified the No. 11 FedEx Ground Toyota in 27th after a lap of 189.767 mph (28.456 seconds), while Matt Kenseth will start 29th after a lap of 189.328 mph (28.522 seconds) in the No. 20 Dollar General Toyota.

Joey Logano won the pole in the final round, and will start next to his Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski.

The KOBALT 400 goes green Sunday at noon PT.


Busch, in the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota Camry, was runner-up to Keselowski Saturday in the Boyd Gaming 300 Nationwide Series race at LVMS. Kenseth finished sixth in the No. 20 GameStop Toyota, while Elliott Sadler in the No. 11 Interstate Batteries Toyota finished 13th.
