INDIANAPOLIS – Jimmie Johnson will lead his teammates to the green flag on Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Johnson advanced to the final round of qualifying for the Brickyard 400 and will start in fourth.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., Chase Elliott and Kasey Kahne did not advance to the final round and will start 13th, 16th and 19th, respectively.

“I under drove the second corner and it probably cost us down the back straightaway,” Earnhardt said. “But we had good speed all day and hopefully that’s going to carry on into the race. So we’ll see how it works out.”

Kyle Busch captured the pole.

Sunday’s race is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC, IMS and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
