Sadler on Brickyard Pole

Sadler was over one mph faster than anyone else to claim the pole at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Alongside him will be Dodge's Jeremy Mayfield, with Chevrolet's Michael Waltrip, Dodge's Kasey Kahne and Chevrolet's Brian Vickers completing the top five.

Just outside the top five in sixth was Dodge's Ryan Newman, one place ahead of Jeff Gordon who has suffered a streak of poor finishes after a good start to the season. Gordon's teammate, points leader Jimmie Johnson, was unable to run in qualifying and will start from 42nd.

Second and third in points didn't have a great qualifying either, with Tony Stewart in 22nd and Greg Biffle in 31st place.
