It took Brian Scott 70 starts in the NASCAR Nationwide Series before he achieved his first career pole, but he did just that Saturday afternoon.

Scott turned a fast lap of 176.748 miles per hour, just beating out Brad Keselowski, who will also be starting on the front row for Saturday afternoon’s race from Chicagoland Speedway.

“I’ve been in the top five before and been on the pole and been knocked off,” said Scott, who drives for Joe Gibbs Racing. “It’s good to get one.”

Scott had to overcome much adversity on Friday, as the team had to make an engine change, which seemed to resolve their issue.

Also qualifying in the top-five were Paul Menard, Ryan Truex, and Elliott Sadler.

The current NASCAR Nationwide Series points leader, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., will line up 11th in the Dollar General 300.
