Recap: Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano secured top-10 starting positions for Saturday night's Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway, qualifying ninth and tenth respectively. Logano led the way for Team Penske in the first round of qualifying, turning the third fastest lap in the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion. However, it was Keselowski leading the way for the team in the final round, eclipsing his teammate and defending race winner by two-hundredths of a second in the No. 2 Autotrader Ford Fusion. The two-teammates have combined to win four races on the high-banked Tennessee half-mile, with Logano winning the last two consecutive Bristol Night Races. The duo will share the fifth row to start Saturday night's 500-lap event.
