Jeff Gordon led a Hendrick Motorsports lock-out of the front two rows of the grid for the Aaron's 499 restrictor plate race at Talladega Superspeedway.
Qualifying for this year's first Talladega Superspeedway race couldn't have gone any better for Hendrick Motorsports, which saw its drivers seize the top four positions on the grid with Jeff Gordon leading the way and claiming his 70th career Sprint Cup pole.

Mike Skinner, Tony Raines and Michael McDowell, while Sam Hornish Jr. will make the grid on his return to the series filling in for Robby Gordon, despite having his times disallowed for failing to pass post-race checks on the car's ride height.
