Skinner Marches To Pole

17921Jpg
RICHMOND, Va. - Mike Skinner drove his backup car to the pole position with a lap of 125.792 mph to claim the top spot for Saturday night's Chevy Rock and Roll 400 at Richmond International Raceway.

Skinner wrecked his U.S. Army Pontiac in Friday morning's practice session and was forced to use the team's second car. But the veteran was able to put the backup to good use and sped to his sixth career NAScAR Winston Cup Series pole.

Greg Biffle qualified the Grainger Ford second quickest and will join Skinner on Saturday night's front row. Mark Martin, Ryan Newman and Jeff Gordon completed the Top 5 qualifiers.

Sterling Marlin, Jeff Burton, Ward Burton, Johnny Benson and Kyle Petty rounded out the first ten.

Dale Jarrett, Dave Blaney, Steve Park, Jason Leffler, Christian Fittipaldi, Mike Wallace and Hermie Sadler used provisionals to make the 43-car field.

Larry Foyt and Billy Bigley did not make the race.

Saturday night's Chevy Rock and Roll 400 will take the green flag at 7:30 p.m. (ET).
