JR Motorsports Brad Keselowski clocked in second with Mike Bliss, Clint Bowyer, and marathon racer Kyle Busch rounding out the top five in quialifying. Other notable drivers in the Federated Auto Parts 300 Nationwide race are reigning Nationwide champ Carl Edwards in 7th, Steve Wallace in 11th, and Greg Biffle in 15th.

Conversely, Brain Keselowski, Brett Rowe, and Ryan Hackett are going to have a shortened race weekend after missing the mark in qualifying.

The Federated Auto Parts 300 at Nashville Superspeedway is planned for a 6:30PM(7:30PM Eastern time) start tonight.
