With the race for the Sprint Cup being getting tighter and tighter every week, Brad Kesoloweski has no room for error. While Kesoloweski struggles at Martinsville, some call this race the game changer.

After qualifying was all said and done, Jimmie Johnson has the upper hand heading into Sunday as he won the pole for Sundays Tums Fast Relief 500.

Brad Kesoloweski, the points leader heading into Martinsville, had a very poor qualifying effort as he qualified 32nd. Brian Vickers, who is driving MWR's #55 Toyota, qualified 2nd. Kyle Busch qualified 3rd, and Jeff Burton qualified 4th.

Dale Earnhardt Jr, who is in his first race back since Talladega, qualified 20th.

Mike Bliss and J.J Yeley were the drivers who did not qualify for the race.
