BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) -- Greg Biffle has won the pole for Sunday's race at Bristol Motor Speedway, maintaining his strong start to the season.

Biffle turned a lap of 125.215 mph in his Roush Fenway Racing Ford during Friday's qualifying session. He is the Sprint Cup Series points leader.

AJ Allmendinger qualified second in a Penske Racing Dodge and was followed by Ryan Newman in a Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing.

Jeff Gordon qualified fourth in a Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. Brad Keselowski was fifth to put both Penske cars in the top five. Regan Smith was sixth and was followed by Aric Almirola, Carl Edwards, Joey Logano and Kasey Kahne.

Timmy Hill was the only driver who failed to qualify. Robby Gordon withdrew because of mechanical problems.
