Denny Hamlin claimed a second straight NASCAR Sprint Cup pole position as he led qualifying for Sunday's round at Dover International Speedway.
Despite feeling the one-mile oval is one of his weakest venues, Hamlin was able to produce a 22.788-second to repeat the pole he secured in the last Cup event there last September.
Joe Gibbs Racing secured three of the top four positions, as Hamlin's team-mates Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth put their Toyotas on row two.
But it was fellow Toyota driver Martin Truex Jr of Michael Waltrip Racing who came closest to deposing Hamlin with a lap 0.026s slower.
Truex's team-mate Mark Martin took sixth, behind Stewart-Haas Chevrolet driver Ryan Newman - the sole non-Toyota interloper on the front three rows.
Charlotte winner Kevin Harvick, reigning champion Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Jamie McMurray completed the top 10.
Championship leader Jimmie Johnson had led morning practice, but a big slide on his qualifying run left him down in 24th on the grid.
