Newman Wins Brickyard 400 Pole

July 27, 2013 Updated Jul 27, 2013 at 7:10 PM EDT

INDIANAPOLIS -- Ryan Newman snatched the pole away from Jimmie Johnson with a blistering lap of 187.531 mph around Indianapolis Motor Speedway to set a track record for NASCAR races at the Brickyard.

Newman was the last of the 45 drivers to make a qualifying attempt Saturday as Johnson's Number 48 was atop the scoring tower for well over an hour with a lap of 187.438. Driver after driver had failed to knock Johnson from the pole, and the four - time Brickyard winner watched and waited to see if Newman could get the job done.
