    Jamie McMurray bumped all eight of NASCAR's championship contenders with a surprising pole-winning run Friday at Martinsville Speedway. The Chip Ganassi Racing driver felt he had a shot at the pole based on a strong test session with his team earlier this month. This is a great track for me, we had a really good test, and when things are going well, you get excited to come to the track.'' Joey Logano and Matt Kenseth, who are both in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field, qualified second and third. Non-Chase driver Tony Stewart was fourth, followed by title contenders Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski.

    When Kurt Busch was eliminated from NASCAR title contention, it became apparent to both the driver and his owner that if a change was going to be made to his team it had to be done soon. The change was a dramatic one: Stewart-Haas Racing will swap the crew chiefs for Busch and Danica Patrick beginning next week, giving each driver three races to work with their new teams. NASCAR has issued a ban on testing next season, so SHR believes it is giving its two teams a jump on 2015. For Busch, who won at Martinsville Speedway in March and made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, the change was necessary to give team owner Gene Haas the results he wants.
