MARTINSVILLE, Va.—Jamie McMurray was a cool as the fall air Friday putting down a lap of 99.905 to set a new pole speed record at Martinsville Speedway. McMurray took the top spot in the final session with five minutes to go. Joey Logano qualified second and Matt Kenseth third.

“We tested here and I thought we had a really good test,” McMurray said. “Keith (Rodden, crew chief) and Josh (Sell, Engineer) just did a really good job adjusting on the car. It’s amazing you can go quicker your second time out. For years we came here to these places and ran slower.”MORE>>>
