Team Penske once again dominated NASCAR’s new qualifying format in the Sprint Cup Series, picking up the front row for the second straight race.
In a reverse of last weekend’s qualifying efforts at Phoenix, Joey Logano won the pole for the KOBALT 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with a speed of 193.278 mph (27.939 seconds) in the No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford, and Brad Keselowski starts on the outside pole in the No. 2 Miller Lite Ford with a speed of 193.099 mph (27.965 seconds).
Clint Bowyer (192.713 mph/280.021 seconds) and Austin Dillon (192.678 mph/28.026 seconds) make up Row Two, with Jimmie Johnson and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (both at 192.596 mph/28.038 seconds) in Row Three. Jamie McMurray, Aric Almirola, Brian Vickers, Ryan Newman, Carl Edwards and Martin Truex Jr. complete the top 12.
