After winning his 31st career Coors Light Pole Award and setting the 11th track record of the season with his Gen-6 Chevrolet SS, Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus chose the first pit stall at Pocono Raceway for Sunday's 400 (1 p.m. ET, ESPN).

In his Toyota Camry, Kyle Busch, who qualified second, and the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing team picked the 31st stall, located on the Turn 3 side of the start/finish line. He has an opening in front of him, one of only two on pit road. Crown Royal presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard powered by winner Ryan Newman chose stall 30 with the opening behind him.

The third-fastest qualifier in a Ford Fusion, Carl Edwards, chose the 25th pit stall with the other pit road opening in front of him. It's on the Turn 1 side, five stalls off of the start/finish line. Across the opening from him is Kurt Busch in stall 24.
