Brad Keselowski was the only Team Penske driver to advance in all three rounds of knockout qualifying today in Atlanta. Keselowski was happy with his car but felt he needed another tenth of a second to compete for the pole position. Both Joey Logano and Paul Menard made one run in the first and second rounds of qualifying and elected to stand on their time. Ryan Blaney made one run in round one and fought a loose race car. He elected to not make a second run in round one.
