NASCAR at Bristol Qualifying 2015: Live Results and Leaderboard Updates – Bleacher Report

Denny Hamlin will sit on the pole for Saturday night’s Irwin Tools Night Race after setting a new track record during qualifying runs on Friday afternoon at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Hamlin’s speed of 131.407 mph during the final round of elimination qualifying was enough to secure him both the pole and track record at NASCAR’s fastest half-mile bullring.

It’s the 22nd pole of his Sprint Cup career and once again positions Joe Gibbs Racing—winners of six of the last eight Sprint Cup races—for another good weekend at the race track.

JGR will start one-two-three for the second straight week with Hamlin on the pole, Kyle Busch starting second and Carl Edwards qualifying third.

David Ragan and Joey Logano round out the top-five qualifiers.

Jeff Gordon, in his final start at Bristol, made it out of the first round of qualifying before falling in the second. He’ll begin the race in 24th position.
