NASCAR at MI 2017 Qualifying Results: Brad Keselowski Takes Pole

It's at the top of Brad Keselowski's bucket list - to win a Monster Energy NASCAR Series race at Michigan International Speedway.

With its fairly new smooth surface, MI is now the fastest track the series competes at as the cars are allowed to run unrestricted and the two mile oval's wide design offers multiple options for drivers to find the fast way around.

Larson said it was his understanding that the flight to the event in Iowa is just a little over an hour, and he insisted he'll get enough rest before Sunday, when he'll try to cap off his weekend in the spotlight with another victory at MI. "It makes you want to win in their backyard and celebrate that victory with them". I'm proud of the first two rounds. Looking at this week's cheatsheet, it is very clear that track position is very important as we see four of the last six winners have started from the pole with some heavy correlation to starting position. "I think Indy we were pretty good at, probably fourth- or fifth-best vehicle, and then same at Pocono, but we broke a driveshaft at Pocono and got in a wreck at Indy". We have. a notebook and we know what to do now, and I feel like now we should be able to run in the top 10, hopefully in the top five. Before getting into this weeks race lets's take a look at the drivers around the cutline. It is the 2012 champion's 14th career pole.

One shaky performance of note belonged to points leader Martin Truex Jr., who failed to make the cut for the final round of qualifying after Keselowski put on an impressive push toward the end of Round 2 to throttle his way up the ranks and slip into the top 12.

Cruise explained , "I was hit by a tiny particle from the runway and I literally thought it broke my ribs". Mission: Impossible 6 star Tom Cruise limped away following what appears to be a stunt gone wrong.

"Paul Wolfe and my team, they kept dialing in on the vehicle and kept working on it", Keselowski said. A lot of fans here. "Cool weekend for me and really excited for it". In qualifying, Keselowski and Team Penske teammate Joey Logano swept the front row.

Matt Kenseth is one of the desperate drivers without a win this season to date and now sitting on the edge of making the playoff cut.

Kyle Larson (201.765 mph), victor of the previous two races at MIS, qualified in ninth place. "Our auto, to start off, has been substantially better than the last time we were here". The second session begins at 11:30 a.m./e.t. and can be streamed on the NBC Sports App.

After besting Chase Elliott for a win at the two-mile track last August, Larson won pole and finished first at the FireKeepers Casino 400 in MI on June 18. The race will air on NBC Sports Network and the Motor Racing Network.
