Brooklyn, MI (Sports Network) - Austin Dillon became the first driver in Nationwide Series to win four consecutive poles after setting a new track qualifying record at Michigan International Speedway.

Dillon, the 23-year-old grandson of NASCAR multi-team owner Richard Childress, earned the top starting position for Saturday's Alliance Truck Parts 250 at Michigan with a qualifying lap at 191.882 mph. He held the previous record here at 190.375 mph, set one year ago.

It was the seventh pole in 57 career Nationwide starts for Dillon. Prior to Michigan, he had won the pole at Charlotte, Dover and Iowa.

Paul Menard, a Sprint Cup Series regular, will start second, followed by Brian Scott, Trevor Bayne, who won last weekend's rain-delayed race at Iowa, and rookie Alex Bowman.

Brad Sweet, Justin Allgaier, Chris Buescher, Brian Vickers and Joey Logano will roll off sixth through 10th, respectively.

Kyle Busch, who has won six races in the series this season, qualified 14th, while points leader Regan Smith grabbed the 20th starting spot.
