Michigan grid: Three Earnhardts to take start

Three Earnhardts take the start in today's Pepsi 400 at Michigan.

Michigan grid: Three Earnhardts to take start

Kerry Earnhardt, making a one-off appearance for veteran Dave Marcis, was second fastest in second round qualifying and will start 27th. His younger brother, Dale Jr, is on pole. But seven-time champion and family patriarch Dale Sr failed to get in on speed and had to take a provisional - he lines up 37th.

Former Winston Cup champion Darrell Waltrip, who retires at the end of the season, Geoff Bodine and Kyle Petty have all failed to qualify for the Pepsi 400 at Michigan.

Pole-sitter Dale Earnhardt Jr was fourth fastest in Saturday's final 'Happy Hour' practice session. Rusty Wallace was fastest, ahead of Tony Stewart and Jerry Nadeau.
