March 1, 2014 — staff report — NASCAR via Getty Images photo — AVONDALE, AZ — Brad Keselowski made it a weekend sweep of the Coors Light Pole Awards as the Nationwide Series completed its first full knockout-style session of qualifying.
Keselowski, who posted a top speed of 134.053 mph, also won the pole for this weekend’s Sprint Cup Seriesrace at Phoenix International Raceway. This is Keselowski’s 15th career pole in the Nationwide Series.
The format debuted in the Nationwide Series last weekend at Daytona International Speedway, but rain caused the session to be called after the first round.
Joining Keselowski on the front row will be Brian Scott. Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth will occupy the second row.
Last week’s pole winner at Daytona, Dylan Kwasniewski, just missed the cutoff to advance to the second round of qualifying and will start 13th.
The Blue Jeans Go Green 200 presented by Cotton, The Fabric of Our Lives is scheduled to go green at 3:47 p.m. ET on ABC.
