Jamie McMurray will sit on the pole for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 for the second straight year after winning qualifying Saturday morning at Sonoma Raceway.

McMurray, who set the course record with a speed of 76.350 mph, made his one and only run in the final qualifying session in the last minutes of the 10-minute round. He'll be looking for his first NASCAR Sprint Cup victory since last October at Talladega.

Finishing in second place was AJ Allmendinger, who is still looking for his first-ever race victory, while third place went to Kyle Larson. McMurray and Larson give the Chip Ganassi team two of the top three drivers heading into Sunday's 3 p.m. ET race.

All 43 drivers began the first 30-minute qualifying session, but only 12 moved on to take another shot at the 1.99-mile road course. Team Hendrick, which has been dominating the circuit the last few weeks, failed to send any drivers into the finals.

Marcos Ambrose and Jeff Gordon, two of the most accomplished road-course drivers in the field, both failed to make the final 12.
