Edwards, Logana get unfamiliar top-10 starts
Edwards has raced seven times at Indy, but started in the top 10 just twice, with a best start of ninth. He finished second in 2008, seventh in 2010 and ninth in 2006.
Denny Hamlin won the pole on Saturday afternoon.
“I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t think I’ve ever qualified well here until now. Seems like it would help, though.”
Logano offered similar thoughts. He has three starts at the Speedway: 20th last year, 34th in 2010 and 18th in 2009.
“I’ve blown up in practice here twice and had to start in the back, and I know it’s really, really hard and takes all day to get up there,” he said. “So starting towards the front is going to be _ I think it’s more important here probably than anywhere we go.”
Last year, he ran as high as third with 40 laps to go but had to make a fuel stop, got caught in traffic and finished 28th.
Two years ago, he led a race-high 86 laps before taking four tires instead of two during a late caution. The move dropped him from first to seventh. He struggled on the restart and eventually crashed and finished 32nd.
Three years ago, he led 116 laps and built a 5-second lead over the competition before getting flagged for speeding on the final pit stop. He finished 11th.
In the five races he has had at Indianapolis, he has led 25 percent of the laps but has no wins to show for it.
He qualified 12th for Sunday’s race.
