Mark Martin On The Pole For Tonight's Sprint Cup Race At Daytona Speedway

Veteran NASCAR driver Mark Martin edged out Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne for the pole position for tonight’s Coke Zero 400 Sprint Cup race at venerable Daytona International Speedway.

Bayne, 20, became the youngest driver to win the Daytona 500, the Super Bowl of NASCAR, in the opening race of the 2011 season.

Clint Bowyer, from Emporia, Kan., will start tonight’s race in the third position on the grid, and Columbia, Mo.’s Carl Edwards will start 14th. Edwards and Bowyer finished second and third in the Toyota/Save Mart 300 last Sunday at Infineon Raceway in Northern California.
