A pill to do the same in humans

Gordon went out very early in
time trials and quickly set the speed
to beat with a lap at 126.251miles per
hour for his 5th pole of the season.

It's also his third pole in a
row, and the 61st pole positiona of his
career.

Carl Edwards qualified second,
but the big story was that Dale Jarrett
was too slow to make it. It ends his
streak of 424 straight starts.
