NASCAR • Carl Edwards captured the pole for the Sprint All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C.

Edwards, the 2011 winner in the exhibition event, completed three laps and a four-tire pit stop Friday in 1 minute, 51.297 seconds.

Kurt Busch will start alongside Edwards on the front row Saturday. Greg Biffle, Kyle Busch and Joe Logano round out the top five.

For the first time since 2000, NASCAR waived the pit-road speed limit, allowing drivers to enter and leave the pits at high speeds.

Defending All-Star race champion Jimmie Johnson skidded past his pit stop when his breaks locked up. He was forced to back up, losing valuable time.

Johnson will start 18th.
