      Brad Keselowski captures the pole at Phoenix

      Brad Keselowski has earned the pole at Phoenix International Raceway after making it through NASCAR's new knockout-style qualifying Friday. Keselowski had a fast lap of 139.384 mph, turning the mile oval in 25.828 seconds to earn a spot on the front row next to Joey Logano for Sunday's 312-mile race. Jamie McMurray qualified third, defending Sprint Cup champion was fourth and Daytona 500 champion Dale Earnhardt Jr. will start fifth next to Greg Biffle Carl Edwars will start 23rd.

      NASCAR made numerous changes for this season, including a tweaked qualifying process in an effort to liven up what had become a monotonous part of race weekend.
