Mark Martin won his fourth pole of the 2012 NASCAR season despite only running a partial schedule, posting a lap of 199.706 mph on Friday at Michigan International Speedway.
Martin, driving Michael Waltrip Racing's No. 55 car, was the only driver to top 199 mph. The second-fastest driver, Carl Edwards, was more than 1 mph slower (198.626 mph).
The veteran driver's 55th career pole tied Bill Elliott for seventh on the all-time NASCAR list. Edwards, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Kasey Kahne rounded out the top five.
Trevor Bayne, Martin Truex Jr., Marcos Ambrose, Landon Cassill and Paul Menard completed the top 10. Dale Earnhardt Jr., who won the last Michigan race and brought back the same car, qualified 22nd.
Stephen Leicht and JJ Yeley failed to qualify for Sunday's race.
