Wallace Wins First Pole

Compiled From Wire Services

Kenny Wallace, best known as Rusty’s little brother, finally got something of his own to boast about, taking the pole position for Sunday’s Goody’s Headache Powder 500 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway. His fast lap of 93.961 mph was enough to knock Joe Nemechek out of the top spot and give Wallace his first pole in 97 Winston Cup starts.

Spokane’s Chad Little failed to qualify on the first day and gets another opportunity today.

Mike McLaughlin took the pole for the BellSouth Mobility-Oprylands USA 320 in Nashville, Tenn. McLaughlin, driving a Chevrolet, turned a lap of 109.935 mph around the .596-mile Nashville Speedway USA to win his first Busch Series pole of the season and second of his career.
