LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Brad Keselowski turned a lap of 135.922 mph to set a track record and win the pole at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Keselowski led a fast Friday on the track, as 10 drivers topped the previous track record, held by Ryan Newman. Newman went 135.232 in 2011.
Jimmie Johnson joins Keselowski on the front row for Sunday's race. Kurt Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Kyle Busch round out the top five.
Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Denny Hamlin, Kasey Kahne, and Jeff Burton all topped Newman's record and completed the top 10.
Keselowski, the 2012 series champion, has yet to win a race this season and needs a big weekend in a hurry if he wants to defend his title in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
