Logano, driver of the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford, qualified third for Sunday’s event. Logano was third in the first of the two “knockout” qualifying sessions and then backed that up by turning in a lap third quick in the final session as well. Logano’s lap of 21.993 seconds was just over a tenth of a second off of the pole winning run from Keselowski.

“That’s a huge pick up for our Shell-Pennzoil team from where we were in practice. If you looked at our practice times, I didn’t think there was any way we were going to make the top-12. But me and my crew chief Todd Gordon talked it over and decided on some adjustments and they worked. Our Ford Fusion was fast. I think I know where I messed up on my lap, but third is a pretty good starting spot. You want to start near the front here and you want to get a good pit stall and third will allow us to do both.”

The FedEx 400 will air Sunday at 12:30 p.m. ET on FOX and it will be broadcast on MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Channel 90.
