On Friday afternoon at Kentucky Speedway, it’d be Brad Keselowski scoring the Coors Light Pole Award for the John R. Elliott HERO Campaign 300 presented by Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. It marks his 15th career pole award and first of the season.
Following a fifth place in last night’s truck race, Keselowski will be looking for his first Nationwide Series win of the season. Keselowski has a pair of top-five finishes in two starts this year.
Kyle Busch, who won the aforementioned truck race, qualified second for tonight’s event, followed by Paul Menard, Matt Kenseth and Brian Scott. Scott is searching for his first career victory and was considered a “threat” for tonight following practice.
Rookie Chase Elliott qualified sixth, followed by Kevin Harvick, Ty Dillon, Ryan Blaney and Elliott Sadler.
Points leader Regan Smith would qualify 14th.
Chad Boat, Kevin LePage and Tommy Jo Martin would fail to qualify for the 40-car field.
