Brad Keselowski
Brad Keselowski has this new car figured out.

Keselowski claimed the pole Saturday for the Carfax 250 at Michigan International Speedway, the second pole for Keselowski in the two races with the new Nationwide Series car. Keselowski, a Michigan native, earned his fifth pole of the season.

Ryan Truex will start second in only his second career Nationwide start.

Colin Braun, Jason Leffler and Ryan Newman round out the top five.

NASCAR's biggest star, and the driver who gets the most media attention, Danica Patrick, will start 33rd despite having one of the best cars in the field.  The only NASCAR driver that gets more media attention is fellow backmarker Dale Earnhardt Jr.
