Brad Keselowski and Teammate Joey Logano Sweep Top Spots at Pocono

LONG POND, Pa. (AP) – With rain falling, Brad Keselowski led a Team Penske front-row sweep and won the pole at Pocono Raceway.

Keselowski and teammate Joey Logano gave owner Roger Penske and Ford the top spots the race Sunday.

Keselowski turned a lap of 181.726 mph in the third round and rain hitting the track. He just nudged Logano out of the top spot to clinch his first pole of the season.

Rain washed out the only Sprint Cup practice and two practices for the Xfinity Series. The Cup cars attempted practice in the morning, but only 28 cars hit the track in roughly 10 minutes before rain brought the incomplete session to a halt.

Matt Kenseth, Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards completed the top five. Tony Stewart was sixth for easily his top qualifying run of the season.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kurt Busch and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top 10.
