NASCAR: Junior wins first pole since 2002

Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the pole today for the Pennsylvania 500. Lineup here. I don't want to disappoint members of the Earnhardt nation, but he was the first one to go out after a rain delay. The track was just quicker. I didn't realize this, but this is Jr's first pole since 2002. Quelle dominance! I mean, Sterling Marlin has won poles since then...Junior wasn't particularly quick in the first practice.

Kurt Busch starts second and qualified before the rain delay. Sometimes my clairvoyance astounds even me. He's still my pick to win. He was, by the way, fastest in practive by six tenths. With his teammate starting 4th, this could be a very good weekend for the Penske boys.
