Daytona 500 - Qualifying times

17 February 2013

Danica Patrick secured pole position for the Daytona 500, the NASCAR Sprint Cup series opener to be held next weekend at Daytona International Speedway. Jeff Gordon will start alongside her after claiming second place on the grid in Sunday's qualifying session.

Patrick's lap of 45.817s (196.434mph) is the fastest Daytona 500 pole-winning speed since 1990. It's the first time that a driver eligible for the rookie of the year title has won pole for the Daytona 500 since Jimmie Johnson in 2002.

Patrick becomes the first ever female racer to claim a Cup pole position in NASCAR. The previous best qualifying position by a woman was in 1977 when Janet Guthrie started from ninth place. Guthrie also held the record for the best start by a female driver in the Daytona 500 when she achieved 18th place on the grid here in 1980.

2011 Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne recorded the third fastest time in qualifying, but his actual starting position - like those of everyone except for Patrick and Gordon - will be decided by the two midweek Duel short races.
