Joey Logano posted a lap of 199.557 mph Friday to win the pole for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway.

Logano will start first on Sunday for the second time this year and the 16th time in his career.

Martin Truex Jr. will begin second, his ninth start among the top 10 this season. Tony Stewart will also be in the front row for the 40-car race.

Truex was among 26 drivers who failed their initial NASCAR pre-qualifying inspection due to not meeting the new aerodynamic guidelines that are debuting this week.
