Rain allowed Brad Keselowski to win the pole for Sunday’s Kobalt Tools 400 from Las Vegas based on last year’s owner points. Clint Bowyer, Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne, and Greg Biffle round out the top five starting positions. The only driver that missed the field was Mike Bliss. The event will be live on FOX at 3 PM EST.
