Martin has won the pole at Bristol Motor Speedway. He turned a lap at 125.773 mph to earn the top starting spot for Friday's race.

It marks the first time in 20 years that Martin has won consecutive poles. He did it at Darlington and Bristol in 1989.

The 50-year-old driver has done it this year at Atlanta two weeks ago, and now Bristol.

Ryan Newman qualified second for Sunday's race and three-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson was third. Greg Biffle and Kasey Kahne round out the top five.

Jeremy Mayfield and Scott Riggs are the two drivers who failed to qualify. Both had raced their way into the season-opening Daytona 500.

Yes, in the category of unfortunate names, no one will ever take the place of Dick Trickle. May as well just name your kid "The Clap." :chuckle:

It would be even funnier than that if it was Jeff Gordon.

That headline DOES exist for Jeff Gordon but it's reserved for the "same sex oriented" publications. :chuckle:
