Sadler on pole for Dover Nationwide race

Elliott Sadler will start on the pole for Saturday's One Main Financial 200 Nationwide Series race after edging Carl Edwards by the slimmest of margins in qualifying at Dover International Speedway.

Sadler turned a lap at 153.734 mph around the one-mile, concrete-surfaced Dover track for his fourth pole of the season and the 10th of his Nationwide career.

His lap time was only 0.001 seconds faster than Edwards, who won the Nationwide race here in May.

Joey Logano qualified third, followed by Clint Bowyer and Ryan Truex.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr., the current points leader, Kasey Kahne, Brad Keselowski, Trevor Bayne and Kenny Wallace completed the top-10.

Stenhouse holds a 14-point advantage over Sadler.

Marc Davis and Tony Raines failed to qualify.

Saturday's 200-mile race at Dover is scheduled to start just after 3:30 p.m. (et).
