Blaney Tops At Rockingham

16317Jpg
ROCKINGHAM, N.C. - Dave Blaney won the pole for the Subway 400 with a speed of 154.683 mph. and earned his first career NASCAR Winston Cup Series top spot. Johnny Benson, who won last fall at Rockingham qualified second with Mark Martin third.

"We were a little bit scared coming in because we had a brand-new car that we had never tested or anything," Blaney said. "We had a lot of different stuff than we're used to running."

Sterling Marlin and Bill Elliott rounded out the Top 5 followed by Ricky Craven, Jamie McMurray, Rusty Wallace, Dale Jarrett and Bobby Labonte.

The session was delayed after a morning rain pushed Friday's schedule back. Although the Winston Cup Series did get one practice session in and the Busch Series was able to qualify, the track was trecherous during qualifying. Jeff Burton and Jerry Nadeau both were victims of the green track and spun during their runs.

"I honestly, really and truly cannot tell you what just happened," Burton said. "I was coming up to speed and wasn't going hard when I lost the rear tires. The rear tires started spinning, so I got off the throttle and I just couldn't catch back up with it."

Sunday's Subway 400 will start at 1 p.m. (ET) and be televised by FOX.
