Brad Keselowski won the pole Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Though Keselowski claimed the pole for the Lakes Region 200 (4 p.m. ET on NBCSN) with a speed of 130.296 mph, he will start from the rear due to being late for the driver-crew chief meeting.

Keselowski is trying to win his fourth straight Xfinity race.

The top five was completed by Christopher Bell, Ryan Preece, Cole Custer and John Hunter Nemechek.

Ryan Truex, Matt Tifft, Austin Cindric, Kaz Grala, Jeremy Clements, Michael Annett and Ross Chastain did not advance out of the second round.

During the first round the red flag came out with 6:25 left due to fluid on the track from Ryan Reed‘s No. 16 Ford.

Reed will start last.
