This is the first pole Busch has scored at Martinsville Speedway in 19 races and the 14th pole in 335 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races.
JGR was the only team that had all three cars go on to the second qualifying round. Matt Kenseth will start sixth.
Even with the Team Penske having been knock off the front row, Joey Logano, with a first round speed of 100,201 mph, broke the previous track record set on October 25, 2013 by Hamlin with 99.595 mph.
The half mile track is beginning to look like a favorite for Danica Patrick, who will start 10th, making this her highest start at a non-restrictor plate race; her previous highest start had been 21st at Atlanta and New Hampshire. Last season Patrick finished 12th for the spring race and 17th at the fall race at Martinsville.
Race coverage begins Sunday, March 30 at 1:00 p.m. eastern standard time on Fox.
