Montoya races to Brickyard pole

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Former Indianapolis 500 winner Juan Pablo Montoya has won pole position for Sunday's Brickyard 400 with a lap of 182.278 mph.

Success at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is nothing new to Montoya, who won the Indy 500 in 2000. He had a strong run going in last year's Brickyard, only to have his shot at a victory undone by a late pit road speeding penalty.

Jimmie Johnson qualified second, followed by Mark Martin, Jamie McMurray and Ryan Newman. Chevrolets swept the top six starting spots.
