NASCAR Sprint Cup Series: Samuel Deeds 400 at Indianapolis – Race Line-Up

Ryan Newman, No. 39 Quicken Loans/The Smurfs Chevrolet SS, was the final driver to make a qualifying run during Saturday afternoon’s time trials for the 20th Annual Crown Royal Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard, but he made it count.   Newman clipped fellow Team Chevy driver Jimmie Johnson’s time in the No. 48 Lowe’s/Kobalt Tools Chevrolet SS by a mere 0.024 seconds, to earn the inside front row starting spot for Round 20 on the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup tour.  Newman’s track-record run of 187.531 mph and 47.992 seconds gave him his 50th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) pole, making him the ninth driver to eclipse 50 pole wins. The run also moved him up to ninth on the all-time list of pole winners.

Johnson, who was 11th in the qualifying order, posted a time that held through the first 44 qualifiers and was only bested by Newman.   With a quest for five Brickyard wins, the Hendrick Motorsports driver will start from the second position, marking the fifth time Team Chevy has had an all-bowtie front row for the 400-mile event.  Johnson scored wins at the famed 2.5-mile track in 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2012.
