Keselowski moves up to pole after Logano crashes in practice

Point leader Brad Keselowski will move onto the front row of Sunday's Sprint Cup finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway thanks to a wreck during Saturday's first practice. Pole-sitter Joey Logano will go to a backup car and start at the back of the field after being involved in an accident with Denny Hamlin and Greg Biffle. When Logano drops back just prior to the start of the race, the inside line will move up and put Keselowski essentially on the pole position. Keselowski qualified third. NASCAR has the discretion of whether to allow the pole-sitter to pick what lane he would have started. Officials opted not to give Logano, who will be Keselowski's teammate at Penske Racing next year, that choice. Keselowski enters the race with a 20-point lead over five-time champion Jimmie Johnson, who will start 10th. Johnson in the outside lane will not move up.
