Martin Truex Jr.: Wins Sprint Showdown Pole

Update: Truex Jr. won the pole for the Sprint Showdown at Charlotte Motor Speedway Friday afternoon. He turned a fast lap of 193.424 mph.

Recommendation: The Michael Waltrip Racing veteran edged Jamie McMurray to claim the pole position for Saturday night's opening heat race at CMS. Truex is a two-time winner of the Sprint Showdown, so he's a heavy-odds favorite to win this 40-lap event that kicks off All-Star Saturday.
