Dover: Cup qualifying

31 May 2013

Denny Hamlin will start Sunday's FedEx 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race from pole position at the Monster Mile, after his lap of 22.788s (157.978mph) at Dover International Speedway put him 0.026s ahead of fellow Toyota driver Martin Truex Jr., will start alongside Hamlin on the front row for Michael Waltrip Racing.

It's Hamlin's second consecutive pole after also taking the top spot last weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. It's his third pole of the year so far and his 15th pole in 268 series starts.

Hamlin's team mate Kyle Busch will start from the second row of the grid alongside the final member of the JGR line-up, Matt Kenseth. Ryan Newman was the top Chevrolet car on the third row, just preventing MWR's Mark Martin from making it an all-Toyota top-five.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was the fastest qualifying rookie in 23rd, while Danica Patrick will have to work her way up from 39th. There were 43 cars entered in this weeks's race, meaning that all make it onto the grid for the race.
