Joey Logano won the pole for today’s Xfinity Series My Bariatric Solutions 300 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Driving Team Penske’s No. 12 car, Logano posted a speed of 192.768 mph in the final round to earn his second pole of the year and the 33rd of his Xfinity career.

“It’s going to be so crazy, anytime you have a repave you don’t know how the track is going to react,” Logano told Fox Sports. “Obviously the groove right now is pretty narrow, as it widens out it will get better. It will be interesting the first few laps. Starting towards the front is probably the safest play to be.”

Filling out the top five is Erik Jones, Austin Dillon, Ryan Blaney and rookie William Byron. Byron is the top qualifying Xfinity regular.

Logano has won his last three starts in the No. 12 car dating back to last season. He won the race at Las Vegas earlier this year.

Kevin Harvick, Daniel Suarez, Spencer Gallagher and Matt Tifft were among the drivers who did not advance to the third round.
