Truex wins AAA 400 Pole

Martin Truex, Jr. put his No. 56 NAPA Toyota on the pole for Sunday’s AAA 400 at Dover. It was Truex’s second pole at the Monster Mile, with his first coming in the May 2010 event. Dover, which is also the New Jersey native’s home track, marks the location of his first Sprint Cup victory in 2007.

Kurt Busch will start alongside Truex and was just three one-thousands of a second slower than the pole-sitter. Rounding out the top 10 are Paul Menard, Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, A.J. Allmendinger, Bobby Labonte, Kasey Kahne and Greg Biffle.

Other notables include the spring Dover winner, Matt Kenseth who qualified 18th. The winner of the last two races, Tony Stewart qualified his Office Depot Chevrolet in 28th. Jeff Gordon struggled to a 34th place effort.
