Juan Pablo Montoya on Pole for NASCAR's Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire

During Friday afternoon qualifying, Juan Pablo Montoya continues to deliver some impressive performances in the #42 Target Chevrolet Impala by grabbing the pole for Sunday's Sylvania 300. Tony Stewart and Kurt Busch start 2nd and 3rd after setting identical times (Stewart received the second spot on being the first driver to set the time). With Richmond winner Denny Hamlin set to roll off 4th and Carl Edwards starting 5th, the top 5 are all Sprint Cup Chase contending drivers. An inspired run by David Stremme places the #12 Penske Dodge 6th as he was job searching for 2010. Rounding out the top 10 is Montoya's teammate Martin Truex Jr, Bobby Labonte in the #71 TRG Chevy, Kyle Busch, and Jeff Gordon.
