(WNFL)- Wisconsin NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth will start in the 12th position in Sunday night's Coca-Cola-600 in Charlotte. The Cambridge native had a qualifying lap of 192-point-898 miles an hour last night. Once again, Kenseth will try to move into the season points' lead in NASCAR's top circuit. He's currently in second, 15 points behind first-place Jeff Gordon. Jimmie Johnson won the pole for NASCAR's longest race, with a one-lap speed of 194-point-567. Paul Menard of Eau Claire will start 21st. Danica Patrick, who was born in Beloit and raised at nearby Roscoe Illinois, earned the Number-four spot with a qualifying speed of 193-point-334. In her second round, she led a 10-minute session at 194-point-595 -- the fastest qualifying lap ever by a female driver at a one-and-a-half mile intermediate speedway. The Nationwide Series will also be in action at Charlotte, with the History-300 tomorrow afternoon. Kenseth is also entered in that event, and was eighth in his second practice session. Truck series' driver Johnny Sauter of Necedah is also entered in the Nationwide event. He placed 19th in his last practice run. Sauter's Camping World Truck Series is off until next weekend.
