Keselowski Earns Pole And Sets Track Record At Loudon

September 19, 2014

LOUDON, NH (September 19, 2014) – Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite Ford team set a new track record at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on the way to earning their fifth Coors Light Pole Award of the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season on Friday. The performance marks Keselowski’s eighth-career NSCS pole and the 12th front-row start for the team this season.

“I think Paul and the team brought a great car here, much like what we had in the spring race,” said Keselowski. "I think the temperatures and all those things are why you’ve seen an increase in speeds and certainly the guys have worked on horsepower and all those other things, but the cars are really good. This type of track is right in my wheelhouse, right in our team’s wheelhouse. We had this race circled before the Chase started, and we felt decent about Chicago, but felt like this was a race of emphasis for us to get a win and get out of the first bracket. With last week considered it’s even a stronger position for us to be pushing hard.  It’s good. We just want to keep it going.”

Joey Logano and the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford team qualified seventh for Sunday’s Sylvania 300.

“It was just OK,” said Logano. “We weren’t as good as we thought we would be and thought we would have been a little faster than where we ended up. I had to make another run there in the first segment to get in the second and was just a little too free. We’ve got to find a little more speed here.”

The Sylvania 300 will air live on Sunday at 2:00 pm ET on ESPN. The event will also be available on PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
