NASCAR Sprint Cup Series: Save Mart 350 at Sonoma – Race Line-Up

Jamie McMurray took advantage of the new qualifying format at Sonoma Raceway to put his No. 1 Cessna Chevrolet SS on the pole with a fast speed of 94.986 mph for Sunday’s Save Mart 350 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. It was McMurray’s ninth Cup career pole, and the first of the 2013 season. He was also the pole winner at Sonoma in 2007.


The new qualifying format for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, used previously in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, featured eight groups of five or six cars each; and the drivers had five minutes to post their best lap around the 1.99-mile road course. McMurray was in the eighth group.


“It was all-around really good and our car has been good,” said McMurray. “Speed for this team really hasn’t been an issue. We’ve had plenty of speed; it’s just been about the last ten percent of the races and getting that finish. But hopefully we can get our bad luck out of the way and have a really good result this weekend. The truth is, I don’t really care if I lead the first lap tomorrow. I want to be there at the end. And this race, a lot of times comes down to the last restart and not getting in trouble. So, we’ll just dig and fight all day and I think our car will have enough speed. It will just be about not making any mistakes.”
