INDIANAPOLIS – The seasonlong rivalry between Hendrick Motorsports and Team Penske heads into the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where Kevin Harvick will try to crash their party.

Harvick, Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski swept the top three spots in qualifying for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event, setting up what could be a showdown between the most dominant teams so far this season.

Harvick, who picked up his fourth pole of the season Saturday, already has two victories this season but was in the mix for several others with his new Stewart-Haas Racing team. Gordon is the Sprint Cup points leader and has been a model of consistency all year for Hendrick Motorsports, and Keselowski has given Penske three victories.

“I’m pretty sure all those groups have their best stuff here,” Gordon said.

Kasey Kahne of Enumclaw will start in 10th and Greg Biffle of Vancouver, Wash., will start in 19th of 43.

OTHER RACE

Ty Dillon pulled away from Kyle Busch down the stretch in the Lilly Diabetes 250 at Indy to win for the first time in 31 career starts in the Nationwide Series, NASCAR’s second tier.

Dillon, 22, is the grandson of team owner Richard Childress. He finished 0.833 seconds in front of Busch.

Derrike Cope of Spanaway finished 34th of 40 drivers.
