Brad Keselowski had himself some day at the Kentucky Speedway Friday.

Keselowski captured the pole for Saturday's Quaker State 400, coming from behind in the final round of elimination qualifying on Friday night and knocking teammate Joey Logano from the top spot.

It was his second pole of the day, as he captured the pole for Friday night's John R. Elliott Hero Campaign 300 Nationwide Series race earlier in the day.

The No. 2 Ford posted a blistering final-round speed of 188.791 mph, good enough to knock Logano, who had been the leader in the first two rounds of qualifying, into second position.

Jeff Gordon qualified third, followed by Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson. 

Several notables, including Dale Earnhardt Jr.—who captured the pole at this race last year—and Jimmie Johnson were knocked out after one run on the track Friday.

Johnson will start in 25th position, and Earnhardt Jr. will begin in 29th.
