LOUDON, N.H. (July 16, 2011) – Brad Keselowski and the No. 22 Ruby Tuesday Dodge Challenger recorded the fastest lap time during Saturday's qualifying session and will start from the pole position for the New England 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He toured the 1.058-mile oval in 29.438 seconds, or 129.384 miles per hour.
"I think probably more important than anything is the choice of pit stalls, getting that first pit stall," said Keselowski. "That certainly helps with track position which is so important here. It was a good run for our Ruby Tuesday Challenger. I hope it holds up in the race. (Kevin) Harvick is one of the guys to beat and he starts right next to me. I think our cars are pretty equal. It should be a good show."
The New England 200 will air live at 3:30 pm EST on ESPN. Race coverage will also be broadcast live on the Performance Racing Network and Sirius Satellite channel 90.
