Can anyone stop Joey Logano?

Coming off a Daytona 500 victory last Sunday and a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Pole Award on Friday night, Logano rolled into NASCAR XFINITY Series qualifying and dominated the final two rounds.

Logano toured the 1.5 mile oval in the third round of Coors Light Pole Qualifying at 184.162 mph (30.104 seconds) and notched his first pole of the season in the XFINITY Series, and 27th of his career.

Brian Scott followed closely in second at 182.988 mph (30.297), with JR Motorsports driver Regan Smith in third at 182.970 MPH.

Kyle Larson, Matt Kenseth, Brandan Gaughan, Ryan Seig, Kevin Harvick, Chase Elliot and Sam Hornish Jr. completed the top ten spots on the grid.

Noteable drivers that did not advance to the final round included Elliot Sadler (14th), Ty Dillon (17th) and last week’s Daytona winner Ryan Reed (19th).

The Hisense 250 takes the green flag live on FOX Sports 1 just after 2 p.m. local time today.
