Brad Keselowski won the pole on Saturday morning for Saturday afternoon’s Carfax Nationwide Series race at Michigan International Speedway.

Keselowski, the series’ runaway points leader, posted a fast lap of 179.556 mph in his Penske Racing Dodge.

The pole was the fourth of the season in the series for Keselowski, who also has three victories.

Eighteen-year-old Ryan Truex, making just his second start in the series, was second fastest with a lap at 178.625 mph in his Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota.

In his first start, which came at Gateway International Raceway earlier in the summer, Truex qualified 19th and finished 28th.

Colin Braun in a Roush Fenway Racing Ford was third at 178.244 mph.

Jason Leffler qualified fourth fastest at 178.108 mph.

Ryan Newman was fifth fastest.

Sixth was Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Braun’s Roush Fenway teammate.

Carl Edwards, second in points and 327 behind Keselowski, was  14th.

Danica Patrick, making her sixth start of the season, was 33rd.

The series is using the new Car of Tomorrow for the second time this season. The first run for the cars was at Daytona earlier in the summer. Dale Earnhardt Jr. won that race.
