AJ Allmendinger, who was strong on the short tracks last year, was second quickest, 0.031 seconds off of Newman’s quick time. Hendrick Motorsports teammates  Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson followed suit, looking to continue their winning tradition at Martinsville Speedway. Martin Truex Jr. would round out the top-five.

Joey Logano was sixth, followed by Jamie McMurray, Brad Keselowski, Denny Hamlin and Kyle Larson.
