Been a wild weekend already for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver, Brad Keselowski. As we have reported all weekend, he was secretly fined by NASCAR for comments mad about the Electronic Fuel Injection system during a Fan Q&A at the NASCAR Hall of Fame last week. Today, Keselowski pushed all those emotions aside and qualified his No. 22 NASCAR Nationwide Series Dodge on the pole for Saturday afternoon’s Ford 300 from Homestead-Miami Speedway.  His speed was a 167.660 miles per hour. This is his fourth pole of the season and his first at the track. Elliott Sadler, who is chasing Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. for the championship will start on the front row. Current points leader qualified fourth next to Roush-Fenway Racing teammate, Carl Edwards. You can catch the Ford 300 from Homestead-Miami Speedway on ESPN 2 starting with the NASCAR Countdown at 4:00pm EST.
