BRISTOL, Tenn. Stewart-Haas Racing had an interesting Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway, where teammates Ryan Newman and Tony Stewart were on opposite ends of the speed chart.
Newman won the pole for tonights Sprint Cup Series race but Stewart, who is clinging to a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, posted the slowest speed in the qualifying session.
It wasnt a good day for (Stewart); obviously you saw that in qualifying, Newman said.
We dont ever want to see the cars that far apart, whether its the set-up or the results because of a set-up change.
Newman turned a lap at 122.811 mph to win his second pole of the season and 48th of his career, which ranks 10th all-time.

The win was the 50th of Buschs career in NASCARs second-tier series and broke a tie the 26-year-old had with Mark Martin.
Its awesome, Busch said in Victory Lane. Just phenomenal.
