Joey Logano won the Coors Light Pole Award for the NASCAR XFINITY Series on Saturday at Michigan International Speedway with a final-round speed of 193.637 mph.

Logano’s speed of 193.772 mph in Round 1 set a track record.

It was Logano’s 29th pole win in the series and his first at Michigan. Logano will line up on the front row alongside Brian Scott for Saturday’s Great Clips 250 (1:30 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1, MRN, SiriusXM).

Darrell Wallace Jr., Kyle Larson and Paul Menard rounded out the top-five finishers.

Chase Elliott and Kyle Busch failed to get to the start-finish line in time for their qualifying laps to count. That proved to be costly for Elliott, who posted a better speed than Logano in the final round.

Ty Dillon led the second round with a speed of 193.522 mph, while Denny Hamlin was the first driver to miss the cut to the final round. Series points leader Chris Buescher also did not advance to the final round and will start 20th.

CJ Faison hit the wall with his No. 26 Toyota during Round 1, bringing out the red flag.
