After winning the race and the pole in the spring, Jimmie Johnson won his second career pole at the "Monster Mile" for Sunday's AAA 400 at Dover Int'l Speedway.

Johnson is a four-time winner at Dover, including a win in the spring May race where he scored the pole and the win.

"I'm obviously pleased with the performance from New Hampshire and very happy to be where we are in the points," said Johnson, who trails Mark Martin by 35 points in the standings. "We seem to be off to a great start here. Dover, the way it went in the spring for us, I am really excited going back although we're on a different tire which is going to be different, but we were lucky enough to be one of the teams that was involved in the tire test."

"All in all, I'm optimistic and I feel that there's a stretch of tracks that are really good for the 48 coming up," he said. "Looking forward to separating the Chase group out a little more and gaining ground on Mark (Martin) and trying to get ahead and be the leader here sometime in the next couple races."

Juan Pablo Montoya, Ryan Newman, Greg Biffle and David Reutimann rounded out the top five.

David Reutimann, Kasey Kahne, Jeff Gordon, Clint Bowyer, Sam Hornish, Jr. and Paul Menard completed the first ten qualifiers.
