McMurray Wins Pole Position for Chicagoland -- SATURDAY'S RACE ON THE RADIO
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- Jamie McMurray has won the pole position for Saturday night's race at Chicagoland Speedway.

It is the third pole of the season and sixth of his career for McMurray, who won the Daytona 500 in February but has been struggling of late. McMurray turned a lap of 183.542 mph in his Chevrolet.

He was followed by the Chevrolets of Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart. Greg Biffle qualified fourth in a Ford, followed by Sam Hornish Jr. in a Dodge.
