RICHMOND, Va. -

Matt Kenseth didn't wait long to get his pole award back.
 
The Joe Gibbs Racing driver stripped of his pole award from last week at Kansas in a raft of penalties levied by NASCAR this week, set a track record with a lap at 130.334 mph Friday at Richmond International Raceway.
 
Kenseth edged JGR teammate Brian Vickers by 0.005 seconds to claim only the 10th top starting position of his career in 481 starts.
 
Jeff Gordon qualified third, followed by Kasey Kahne and Clint Bowyer.
