Concord, NC-- After running slightly behind schedule due to early morning rain, qualifying was run in its entirety under sunny skies. Apparently the Winston Cup regulars were disappointed in missing their qualifying session. The top four positions were taken by Cup regulars, with Michael Waltrip on the pole for Saturday's 300-mile event at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

Waltrip ran his lap around the 1.5-mile track in 29.943 seconds, a speed of 180.343mph. "My lap was as good as I could do. I ran around there as well as I could."

Waltrip will be joined on the front row by Roush Racing's Jeff Burton. Burton's lap, good enough for second, topped speeds at 180.337 mph.

Jimmy Spencer, Joe Nemechek and Scott Riggs close out the top five.

Jack Sprague, Mark Green, Jeff Green, Larry Foyt and Kevin Lepage round out the top 10 on the starting grid.
