NASCAR Richmond 2012 Starting Lineup: Mark Martin Takes Top Qualifying Spot
SB Nation - almost 5 years
Mark Martin may only be a part-timer this season, but his cars are certainly fast every time he shows up.
The veteran Martin won the pole position for Saturday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway, knocking off Carl Edwards as the final car to take a qualifying lap.
Edwards was second, followed by Kevin Harvick, AJ Allmendinger and Kyle Busch, who has won the last three Richmond spring races.
"Man, that was dramatic for me," Edwards said. "I thought we had him, and then he shot up to the top of the scoreboard."
Rounding out the top 10: Jeff Gordon, Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr., Kasey Kahne and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Scott Riggs and J.J. Yeley failed to qualify for the race and were sent home.
Here is the starting lineup for Saturday night's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway:
