NASCAR starting lineup at Michigan: Joey Logano claims pole as Fords dominate qualifying

Joey Logano claimed the pole for the Sunday’s NASCAR Cup race at Michigan International Speedway, and he’ll have plenty of company from fellow Ford drivers up front.

Fellow Ford driver Aric Almirola will start on the front row beside Logano, and Fords grabbed five of the top six positions and eight of the top 10 spots in qualifying Saturday for the FireKeepers Casino 400.

That gives the manufacturer bragging rights at the track located about an hour west of Detroit. Every manufacturer wants to do well at Michigan, something Ford executive Edsel Ford II outlined in a dinner with Ford drivers this week.

“We went to dinner the other night with Edsel, and he told us how important it was to have a victory here,” Logano told FS1 afterward.
