Jeff Gordon has bounced back from a crash in last week’s first Chase race to score pole for Sunday’s Sylvania 300 in New Hampshire.

Gordon’s 72nd career pole came after the Hendrick Chevrolet driver lapped 0.03s quicker than the man he knocked out of Chase contention two weeks ago, Kyle Busch.

Tony Stewart, Brian Vickers, Carl Edwards and Kasey Kahne completed the top six.

Points leader Brad Keselowski will line-up 15th, while Australian Marcos Ambrose was 21st, one place behind title contender Jimmie Johnson.

Denny Hamlin was just 32nd fastest after his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota team made a mistake with the car’s tyre pressures.
