DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Denny Hamlin gave Toyota its first victory at NASCAR's top level by winning the second qualifying race to set up a Daytona 500 showdown between Joe Gibbs Racing and mighty Hendrick Motorsports.

Dale Earnhardt Junior won the first qualifier for Hendrick and will start on the second row of Sunday's race with Hamlin. Hendrick driver Jimmie Johnson is on the pole. Tony Stewart will start in the third row for Gibbs.

Hendrick drivers Jeff Gordon and Casey Mears start from the next two rows. That means six of the first 10 starting spots will be filled by Hendrick or Gibbs drivers.
