Juan Pablo Montoya has won the pole during Friday’s time trials for Saturday night’s Crown Royal 400 at Richmond to claim the seventh pole of his NASCAR Sprint Cup career.

Montoya toured the three-quarter-mile Richmond International Raceway in 20.989 seconds (128.639 mph) to earn his second pole of the season and edge Regan Smith (128.382) for the top spot in Saturday’s race.

Clint Bowyer qualified third at 128.272 mph, followed by Kasey Kahne (128.150) and Mark Martin (128.053). Sixth to 10th were Jeff Gordon, Brad Keselowski, points leader Carl Edwards, Joey Logano and Paul Menard.

Defending race winner Kyle Busch qualified 20th, teammate Denny Hamlin 11th and five-time defending Cup champion Jimmie Johnson 30th. Bowyer, Johnson, Hamlin and Busch have combined to win the past eight races at Richmond.

Brian Keselowski, returning to the track after gall bladder surgery last month, failed to qualify for the 43-car field.
