Brad Keselowski Wins Pole at New Hampshire

Brad Keselowski Wins Pole at New Hampshire

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images For NASCAR(LOUDON, N.H.) — Brad Keselowski took home the pole on Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and will start up front after winning last weekend at Chicagoland.

Keselowski set a track-record lap of 140.598 mph and is hoping to win the second race in the first round, even though he’s already advanced.

“This kind of track is kind of right in my wheelhouse, right in our team’s wheelhouse,” Keselowski said. “We had this race circled before the Chase started and we felt decent about Chicago, but really felt like this was a race of emphasis for us to get a win and get out of the first bracket.”

Keselowski swept the Cup and Nationwide races at Loudon in July.

“It’s positive momentum,” he said, “but when it resets it resets and nothing that you’ve done in the past really matters as long as you’re eligible for the bracket. I’m a long, long ways from using the word favorite or feeling overly confident.”

Jamie McMurray, who is a non-chase driver finished second and was followed by Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, and Jimmie Johnson.

Denny Hamlin Wins Pole for Pocono Raceway

Denny Hamlin Wins Pole for Pocono Raceway

Chris Graythen/Getty Images for NASCAR(LONG POND, Pa.) — Denny Hamlin took home his second pole of the season on Friday after he set the track record at Pocono Raceway.

Hamlin has four career wins at Pocono and already has one Sprint Cup win at Talladega Superspeedway this season.

“Very proud to have that,” Hamlin said after winning the pole.  “Especially on a race track here where track position is going to be premium.”

Hamlin’s last pole win came at Bristol and he will be racing for the second time at the newly paved track on Sunday.

“Hope that this race track has aged a little bit,” Hamlin said of Pocono.  “When it was old and worn out is when we were really good around this race track.”

Jimmie Johnson, who was the last person to win three races in a row in 2007, is seeking his third straight victory at a track that crew chief Chad Knaus enjoys.

“This is Chad’s favorite race track,” Johnson said on Friday.  “[Chad] loves the challenge here.”
