Joey Logano topped speeds over 203 mph as he beat out Kurt Busch for the top starting spot in Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400.
That makes it the sixth pole of his career, but his first at Michigan. He also had a couple other firsts in doing so – his first in a Ford and his first since moving to Penske Racing this season.
“When you come to Michigan, obviously there’s extra incentive to win here and get poles — for one, Ford being here and Penske also having their headquarters here,” Logano said, via NASCAR.com. “Any time you can come here and get a pole for Roger, it’s huge.
“I think what you’re seeing here is we ran really good here in the spring, and you come back here in a short amount of time, and you’re able to use your notes you had from there. This is the second time we’ve come here as a team, and we were able to learn a lot from it.”
