Stewart Takes Daytona Pole

Tony Stewart continued on from where he left off last weekend to take pole position for Saturday night's Nextel Cup race at Daytona International Speedway

Stewart led an all-Chevrolet top five, with Scott Riggs, Jimmie Johnson, road racer Boris Said and Joe Nemechek completing the top five.

The best placed Ford was Elliott Sadler in sixth place, while the highest Dodge was Rusty Wallace in ninth. In all, Chevrolets filled fourteen of the top seventeen places.

Surprisingly one of these Chevrolets is not Dale Earnhardt Jr, who again qualified well down the field on 39th at a track he and his team have been dominant at in past seasons.

The winner of the past two races at Daytona, Jeff Gordon, starts fifteenth, four places behind the other Gordon, Robby. Points leader Greg Biffle will start eighteenth, ten places ahead of teammate and reigning series champion Kurt Busch.
