DOVER, DE -- Joey Logano won the pole for Saturday's Dover 200 Nationwide Series race, while his teammate, Kyle Busch, qualified second to give Joe Gibbs Racing the front starting row at Dover International Speedway.

Logano's fast lap of 154.308 m.p.h. topped Busch's lap of 154.143 m.p.h. Logano scored his fifth pole of the season and the 12th of his Nationwide career. He also picked up his second pole in four starts at Dover.

Busch has two Nationwide wins at Dover, including a victory here in May.

Carl Edwards qualified third, followed by Brad Keselowski, the current points leader, and Paul Menard. Keselowski holds a commanding 373-point lead over Edwards.

The top-five qualifiers are all Sprint Cup Series regulars.

Reed Sorenson, Justin Allgaier, Trevor Bayne, Kevin Harvick and Steve Wallace completed the top-10.

Danica Patrick qualified a disappointing 42nd in her seventh Nationwide start.

Stephan McCurley, Alan Tardiff, Donnie Neuenberger, Matt Carter and Kevin Lepage failed to qualify. Lepage spun around and backed it into the outside wall during his opening lap.

The 200-mile race at Dover is scheduled to start just after 3:30 p.m. (et).
