DOVER, Del. - Jeremy Mayfield won his eighth career NASCAR Nextel Cup Series pole on Friday taking the top spot for the MBNA 400 "A Salute to Heroes" at Dover International Speedway.

Mayfield's lap of 161.522 mph in his Evernham Motorsports Dodge Intrepid smashed the track qualifying record held by Rusty Wallace.

"We tested here but we never dreamed we'd come here and be this fast," Mayfield said. "We have a great car and we're really looking forward to the weekend."

Ryan Newman qualified second in the ALLTEL Dodge followed by Brian Vickers, Rusty Wallace and Brendan Gaughan. Penske Racing put three drivers in the Top 5.

Elliott Sadler, Mark Martin, Michael Waltrip, Jamie McMurray and Tony Stewart rounded out the first ten qualifiers.

Todd Bodine, Hermie Sadler and Larry Gunselman failed to qualify for Sunday's race.
