Joey Logano continues to rack up career firsts and Friday night he did so again. Logano put down the fastest lap of the three round knockout qualifying session to secure his first career pole at Kansas Speedway Friday evening. The Penske Racing driver will lead the field to the green for Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup SpongeBob SquarePants 400.
“It is cool to get another pole,” Logano said. “Last year it took us pretty much the whole year to get one pole and we won a lot of first and second sessions and would fall on our face in the third session. It is good to figure out the third session and have speed in our car when we get there. You don’t get anything for winning the first and second round. That is what I figured out last year.”
Logano, who scored his first career win at Kansas the last time the Sprint Cup series visited here in the fall, put down the fastest lap in the final round. He now leads all active drivers with four poles this season.
