McMurray Martinsville Pole Winner

Jamie McMurray

Jamie McMurray paced Saturday’s qualifying session to win the pole for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Goody’s Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

McMurray will be making his 300th career Sprint Cup Series start on Sunday and is glad he’ll be taking the green from the top spot.

“Starting position is so important here because it’s obviously a very tight race track,” said McMurray. “This was a great way to start the weekend and we’d love to commemorate the 300th start with a trip to victory lane.”

McMurray toured the .526-mile track with a lap of 96.509 mph.

Ryan Newman will start outside McMurray in an all-Chevrolet font row after his lap of 96.342 mph earned him the number two starting spot.

Kasey Kahne, Joey Logano and defending race winner Denny Hamlin rounded out the first five qualifiers.

AJ Allmendinger, Bobby Labonte, David Reutimann, Kevin Harvick and Regan Smith will complete the first 10 starters in Sunday’s grid.

Joe Nemechek's qualifying time was disallowed after the car failed post-qualifying inspection. He will now start 43rd instead of 37th.

Motor Racing Network's coverage of Sunday's 500-lap race will begin at 12 Noon (ET).
