(AP) Joey Logano raced to one of the fastest qualifying speeds in NASCAR history Friday, winning the pole at Michigan International Speedway at 203.949 mph.


Logano broke the track record set by Marcos Ambrose last year. Ambrose's mark of 203.241 mph came on the first Sprint Cup weekend on a newly paved surface at MIS. His record lasted 14 months.


Logano's speed was the ninth-highest by a pole winner in NASCAR history and the fastest since Bill Elliott set the record of 212.809 mph at Talladega on April 30, 1987.


Kurt Busch qualified second, and points leader Jimmie Johnson was third.


Logano is 16th in the Cup standings, and this is his first pole of the year.
