Truex takes pole at Dover

Martin Truex Jr beat NASCAR Sprint Cup title contender Kurt Busch to pole position for Sunday's Chase race at Dover International Speedway. The Michael Waltrip Racing driver set a fastest lap of 22.641 seconds at an average speed of 159.004 mph, beating Penske's Busch by just three thousandths of a second to claim his first pole position of the season at the track where he got his only Cup victory thus far, back in 2007. "We've had a really good car the last couple of times we've been here," said Truex.

Ekstrom on Valencia pole

Mattias Ekstrom took his second DTM pole position of the year at Valencia while title contenders Martin Tomczyk and Bruno Spengler both endured disastrous sessions. Ekstrom had made it through to the one-lap Q4 shoot-out after setting the fastest lap time of the weekend in the previous section of qualifying, and used the advantage afforded by being the last driver to take to the track to take the 19th pole of his DTM career in a time of 1m30.608s. Surprisingly DTM rookies Filipe Albuquerque and Renger van der Zande will start second and third after the Rosberg Audi and Persson Mercedes drivers took their career-best starting spots; Albuquerque 0.413s slower than Ekstrom in Q4
