Logano on pole for Nationwide race at Dover

Joey Logano will start on the pole in his attempt to win a fourth consecutive Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway.

Logano, a Sprint Cup Series regular, grabbed the top starting position for Saturday's 5-Hour Energy 200 with a qualifying lap at 155.172 mph. He claimed his 23rd career pole in Nationwide, including his third at Dover. Logano scored a season-sweep at this one-mile, concrete-surfaced track in his last year with Joe Gibbs Racing in 2012. His victory here in June came in his fourth Nationwide start as driver of the No. 22 car for Penske Racing.

Sam Hornish Jr., the current points leader, will start alongside his Penske teammate, Logano, on the front row after posting a lap at 154.972 mph.

Austin Dillon, who trails Hornish by 15 points, qualified third, followed by rookie Alex Bowman and Kyle Busch.

Mike Bliss, Brad Sweet, Kevin Harvick, Parker Kligerman and Brian Scott completed the top-10.
