Greg Biffle turned a lap of 155.219 mph to grab the pole for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Best Buy 400 at Dover International Speedway.  It was Biffle's sixth career Sprint Cup Series pole and second this season.  Kurt Busch will start outside the front row in the Penske Racing Miller Lite Dodge.

"They built me a great car," said Biffle. "It's exciting how the No.16 team has come around this year."

"Yeah, it does take a lot of nerve, but when these guys give me cars like this it makes it easy on me," Biffle said of the run. "I just drove it off into one. The car stuck real good in practice. We were actually third-quick our second time out in practice, so we drove it down in the corner and the car really, really stuck good. I went to the gas super-early and didn’t know if I would be able to keep it down and I was actually able to keep it down, so that’s the soonest I’ve ever gotten back to the gas at Dover driving it off in the corner."

"I let them down last week. We had a good enough car to be on the front row at the Coca-Cola 600 and I made a little mistake."

Kurt Busch will start outside the front row in the Penske Racing Miller Lite Dodge.
