LAS VEGAS (AP) - Jeff Gordon has won the pole for Sunday's race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
    
It is Gordon's first career pole at Las Vegas and 79th of his career. The four-time series champion has now won a pole at every active NASCAR track except Kansas and Kentucky. He's retiring at the end of this season.
    
Gordon turned a lap at 194.679 mph in his Chevrolet and gave a hard pump of his arm into the air as he climbed from the car.
    
Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano qualified second and was followed by the Hendrick Motorsports-powered cars of Kasey Kahne, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kyle Larson. Seven of the top 12 drivers have Hendrick engines.
