FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Tony Stewart turned NASCAR's first 200-mph qualifying lap on an intermediate track Friday. He just did it too soon to win the pole for the Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway.

The top spot went to Matt Kenseth, who had a final-round lap of 199.299 while Stewart slipped to sixth after winning the second round at 200.111 mph on the high-banked 1 1/2-mile track.

"To be able to say we're the first guy on a mile a half to run 200, that's pretty cool I think," said Stewart, who is coming off his first top-five finish since March after taking fourth last weekend at Martinsville. "Of course we were trying for the pole, but I missed the corner a little bit."
