There are five Chase drivers and five non-Chasers starting in the top 10. The fastest qualifying Dodge driver was Kurt Busch, who rolls off 20th. Jimmie Johnson is the winningest active driver at Charlotte with six race wins, while Jeff Gordon has won five; Mark Martin, four; Kasey Kahne and Jeff Burton, three; and numerous others with one or two Charlotte race wins each. Polesitter Stewart has one win here in 25 starts – the October race in 2003.

· Safe Bet: (odds of 10/1 or less)

Jimmie Johnson (7/2): Coming off an absolutely dominating performance at Kansas last week, it’s hard not to pick Johnson for Charlotte, where he is the leading active driver in terms of wins and has the second-best average finish. He ran third in this race last year. [ad-8757089]

· Mid Range: (odds between 10/1 – 20/1)

Matt Kenseth (18/1): Though Matt has had a bit of a hit-or-miss record at Charlotte, he did win the Coca-Cola 600 here in 2000 and finished 2nd in this race in 2009. Kenseth will start on the outside pole Saturday night.

· Long Shot: (odds of greater than 20/1)

Kasey Kahne (25/1): As noted, Kahne has won three times at Charlotte (all in a Dodge) and has been strong in practice this weekend, running 2nd and 1st in the two practice sessions and qualifying 8th. In his only Charlotte race in a Red Bull Toyota, earlier this year, he started 17th and finished 22nd.

Summary: A few Chase contenders will start deep in the field Saturday, including Kyle Busch at 25th and Brad Keselowski at 26th.

It’s worth noting, however, that Kevin Harvick won here in May from 28th, while Jamie McMurray won this race last year from 27th.

At the same time, Jimmie Johnson won the 2009 Bank of America 500 from the pole.
