Logano on pole, Keselowski, Johnson close behind

Posted: Updated:

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) - Joey Logano won the pole Friday for NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, with championship contenders Brad Keselowski and Jimmie Johnson not far behind.

Keselowski will start third Sunday in the 400-mile race. He takes a 20-point lead into the finale over five-time champion Johnson.

Keselowski only needs to finish 15th or better - or 16th or better if he leads at least one lap, and 17th or better if he leads the most laps - to win a first Cup championship for himself and team owner Roger Penske.

Johnson will start 10th.

Logano will be driving his final race for Joe Gibbs Racing. He is moving to Penske Racing next season and will be Keselowski's teammate.

Marcos Ambrose qualified second. Carl Edwards, last year's runner-up to Tony Stewart, was fourth. And Aric Almirola was fifth.
