TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - X Games star Travis Pastrana won his first career pole on the Nationwide Series at Talladega Superspeedway.
The 10-time X Games gold medalist-turned-NASCAR driver starts up front in Saturday's Aaron's 312 after posting the fastest qualifying time of 54.255 on Friday on the 2.66-mile tri-oval.
Pastrana called it ``a dream come true.''
It's his second Top 10 start in only 17 Nationwide races. He also secured the first Nationwide pole at Talladega Superspeedway for owner Jack Roush.
Austin Dillon is set to start second with a lap of 54.359 followed by Trevor Bayne (54.387), Danica Patrick (54.447) and Justin Allgaier (54.450).
John Wes Townley's qualifying time was thrown out because his car failed pre-qualifying inspection. He will not race Saturday.
