Carl Edwards secured pole position for the Daytona 500 as Fords dominated qualifying for the NASCAR Sprint Cup season-opener.
Last year's championship runner-up will share the front row with his Roush Fenway team-mate Greg Biffle.
Only the top two starting positions were set by today's qualifying session, as the remainder of the starting order is decided by Thursday's Gatorade Duel heat races.
Edwards set a time of 46.216 seconds at an average speed of 194.738mph to beat Biffle to the top spot by 0.155s.
Fords filled four of the top five places, with only Hendrick Chevrolet driver Dale Earnhardt Jr interrupting the marque's sweep by going third quickest.
Petty Ford's Marcos Ambrose and Germain Ford's Casey Mears completed the top five, followed by Jeff Gordon in another Hendrick Chevy.
Last year's shock winner Trevor Bayne showed good form again by going ninth quickest for Wood Brothers, just ahead of reigning Cup champion Tony Stewart (Stewart-Haas Chevrolet). Kyle Busch, winner of last night's Budweiser Shootout, was only 28th in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. Quickest Toyota driver was Michael Waltrip Racing's Martin Truex Jr in seventh.
Danica Patrick was 30th-quickest in her first Cup qualifying session.
