Recap:  Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion will lead Team Penske to the green in Sunday's 400-mile event at Pocono Raceway following Friday's qualifying session at the 2.5-mile speedway.  Keselowski qualified his Ford Fusion in the seventh position, using a shortened session to his advantage to garner his eighth top-10 starting spot of the season.  A caution flag with less than 40 seconds left on the clock in the final round of qualifying kept five drivers from completing their runs, including teammate Joey Logano.  Those five drivers had to fall back on their second round times, meaning Logano and the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion team will start in the 11th position.  According to TV telemetry, Logano appeared to be on a pole run before the caution waved in the middle of his timed lap.  The 40 seconds remaining after the caution didn't allow for enough time for the drivers to make it back to the start-finish line to take the green flag again before the clock would have run out, leaving them to not get a timed lap in the final session.
