HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) -- Greg Biffle won his first pole in more than a year by nipping Kurt Busch for the top spot in Sunday's NASCAR Nextel Cup qualifying at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Driver Greg Biffle turned a fast lap of 192.453 miles per hour on the one and a-half mile Atlanta oval.

Series leader Jeff Gordon qualified eighth. Runner-up Jimmie Johnson, who is 53 points behind Gordon heading into Sunday's Pep Boys Auto 500, will start just ahead of the four-time Cup champion in sixth.

There are four races left in the NASCAR Chase for the championship.
