NASCAR New Hampshire Starting Lineup: Ryan Newman Leads Sprint Cup Qualifying

The Rocket Man is back.

Ryan Newman picked up yet another pole position on Friday, turning a lap of 135.232 mph to claim the top qualifying spot for Sunday's NASCAR race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Newman, who has 47 career poles but hadn't been in the No. 1 spot in more than a year, went out 44th of 46 cars and knocked David Reutimann from the pole with a new track record.

Stewart-Haas Racing teammate/owner Tony Stewart qualified on the outside pole position, which relegated Reutimann to third.

Kurt Busch will start fourth, followed by Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski.
