Stewart-Haas Racing's Ryan Newman will start from pole position for Sunday afternoon's NASCAR Sprint Cup Brickyard 400 event at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The last man to head out onto the track for his time trial, Newman set a new track record time on the 2.5-mile superspeedway oval with a lap of 47.992s (187.531mph) which was enough to oust long time provisional pole holder Jimmie Johnson by a slender 0.024s.

It's Newman's 50th pole in 424 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races, the ninth driver to reach the landmark. It's his first pole position of 2013 and his first at IMS.

Behind the front row men, Carl Edwards will line up alongside Denny Hamlin on the second row of the grid. Former Indianapolis 500 competitors included Tony Stewart (fifth), Juan Pablo Montoya (eighth), AJ Allmendinger (14th) and Danica Patrick (33rd).

Failing to qualify for the 43-car grid were Mike Bliss and Scott Speed.
