Logano Wins Meijer 300 Pole

By: Adam Niemeyer (FOX19 Sports)

SPARTA, Kent.—Joey Logano should coin the old Sportscenter catch phrase, "You can't stop him, you can only hope to contain him," for his own t-shirts to sell to fans at Kentucky Speedway. The 20-year-old two-time defending race champion has his third consecutive pole at the 1.5-mile tri-oval in Sparta.

Logano, who drives the No. 20 for Joe Gibbs Racing in the Sprint Cup Series and the Nationwide Series, cruised to his third pole in as many tries earlier today in Kentucky. His lap of 30.472 m.p.h. was almost four-tenths faster than second place qualifier Brad Coleman.

Justin Allgaier qualified third and Josh Wise qualified fourth. Stay tuned to FOX19 for a live report from the Speedway on the ten o'clock news. Sports Director Brian Giesenschlag will have highlights and an interview with Bruton Smith.
