While Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is still technically the pole-sitter, he will be forced to drop to the back of the pack during the pace laps because he wrecked his car. . .and his back-up car. . .during the various qualifying events during the week. As he will be driving a different car than the one he qualified in, he has to move to the back of the pack.
