(MARTINSVILLE, Va.) -- Joey Logano edged out Ryan Newman on Friday to win the pole at Martinsville Speedway for Sunday's Sprint Cup race.
Logano finished with a third round lap of 98.461 mph and took home his second pole of the season and tenth in his career.
"You win anything at Martinsville, it's a big deal," said Logano, who already won the Daytona 500 this year. "Nothing but good things happen from starting first."
Dale Earnhardt Jr. won at Martinsville for the first time in his career last October.
"We head to Martinsville," Earnhardt said on the "Dale Jr. Download" on Dirty Mo Radio this week. "We want to try to go down there and win another clock. I think we've got plenty of places we can put one around here so looking forward to this week."
Both Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson have eight career victories at one of NASCAR's smallest race tracks.
