Elliott Sadler will lead the field to green for the third time this season after turning the quickest lap in Saturday’s qualifying session.

Sadler’s lap of 132.386 mph around the 7/8 mile oval was good enough to knock Roush Fenway’s Trevor Bayne off of the provisional pole and solidify the top spot for Saturday night’s race. Sadler survived two late pushes from Jason Leffler and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. to earn his ninth career Nationwide pole.

Bayne (131.959 mph) will start on the outside pole with Sam Hornish Jr. qualifying third. Stenhouse Jr., who earned his first career win at Iowa in May, will start fourth with Drew Herring in fifth.

Justin Allgaier, Jason Leffler, Kenny Wallace, Michael McDowell and Brian Scott rounded out the top 10.
