The 53-year-old Martin now has 54 career Sprint Cup poles. He has three poles this season in 10 races while racing a limited schedule for Michael Waltrip Racing. He's looking for his first Cup win Sunday since 2009.
Martin took the last qualifying lap of the day in the No. 55 Toyota and knocked off Jimmie Johnson from the top spot. Johnson went 158.263 mph and starts second.
Ryan Newman, Clint Bowyer and Matt Kenseth round out the top five.
Martin has five poles to go with his five wins on the 1-mile concrete track at Dover.
