Joey Logano has given himself the greatest opportunity to win his second NASCAR Cup Series championship.
Logano, who was the final racer to undertake a test session in the final round of qualifying on Saturday at Phoenix Raceway, set an average track speed of 134.389 mph to beat his fellow Penske teammate Ryan Blaney (134.373 mph) for the pole position in the championship race on Sunday.
The racer with the best finish among Logano, Chase Elliott, Christopher Bell, and Ross Chastain in the race is crowned the winner.
Bell will begin in position 17, followed by Elliott in position 5, and Chastain in position 25. Fourth in line will be Kyle Larson, whose No. 5 team still has a chance to win the owner’s championship.
Logano has won the pole four times this year and 26 times overall.
“I thought I over-cooked it a little bit in the entry to (Turn) 1, which I did the first time. I over-compensated a little bit for that and I also over-compensated in (Turn) 3, too, where I struggled the first time,” Logano said.
“I wish I could do it again, but – hey- overall, it doesn’t matter. We’re where we need to be – good place to start, better place to finish.”
Logano’s No. 22 Penske squad qualified best among the Championship 4 racers, and as such, they will have first dibs on pit stalls for the race on Sunday.
“We’ve been preparing for several weeks and qualifying was something we talked about a lot and also the race,” he added.
Chase Briscoe, in third place, is followed by Larson, Elliott, Harrison Burton, Kevin Harvick, Cole Custer, William Byron, and Ty Gibbs in the top ten.
