Mark Martin will be on the pole for today’s NASCAR race at Phoenix International Raceway for the second straight year after becoming the second-oldest, pole-sitter in Sprint Cup history.

Joining Martin on the front row will be Kasey Kahne.

Daytona 500 winner Jimmie Johnson is third next to Kyle Busch.

A native of Batesville, Arkansas, Martin turned 54 in January, leaving him just a few months short in beating Harry Gant as the oldest driver to earn a Sprint Cup pole. Gant drove in the NASCAR series when it was called the Winston Cup in the 1980′s and 1990′s.

Today’s Subway Fresh Fit 500 is a 312-mile race.

The second race of the new NASCAR season takes place this afternoon at 2:30 pm in the Phoenix, Arizona suburb of Avondale for the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Speedway.

Mark Martin will be at the pole, followed by Tony Stewart and Regan Smith.

Martin, who won the April race in 2009 at age 50, became the oldest driver to win a Cup event since 1993 when Morgan Shepherd, then 51, won at Phoenix.

The speedway is a mile in length and the 500-mile race is 375 laps.

The oval was reconfigured before the 2011 November race. More rubber and a second groove were worked into the track, for more side-by-side racing.

Reviewing the first race at Phoenix International Speedway, Jeff Gordon was the winner, in his second race with crew chief Alan Gustafson, ended a 66-race drought as Chevrolets finished in five of the top seven places.

Seating capacity at the desert racetrack is 56,000.

Mark Martin had a solid run at the Daytona 500 finishing 10th in the fiery race.

In a short week, due to NASCAR having to race Monday night due to inclement weather in Daytona, Florida and the teams having to travel Monday night and Tuesday to get across the country to Arizona, Martin kept his hot start by grabbing the pole for today’s Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Avondale, Arizona and the Phoenix International Speedway.

Martin took the lead car with an average speed of 136.81 mph, beating out Regan Smith who had held the top spot for most of the day.

Tony Stewart also passed Smith and will start second with Smith third, Jimmie Johnson and Juan Pablo Montoya starting fourth and fifth respectively.

Jeff Gordon is one of NASCAR’s most-popular drivers with fans and the media.

It is hard to believe that prior to Sunday’s Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway, that he had not won a race in 66 starts, dating back to April 2009.

Gordon, a four-time Sprint Cup champion, passed Kyle Busch with eight laps left and stretched his lead from there.

The Indiana native came off a disappointing Daytona 500, struggled in qualifying and started 20th.

He avoided several wrecks and still managed to lead a race-high 138 laps to win for the first time since the win at Texas Motor Speedway in 2009.

The win, his 83rd, tied him for fifth on the all-time list with Cale Yarborough.

Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick and Ryan Newman rounded out the top five.
