Brad Keselowski captured the pole for Sunday's 10th annual The Profit on CNBC 500, presented by Small Business Fueling America. Keselowski posted a fast time in the second session, for his pole lap, with a 25.828 seconds, 139.384 mph. Keselowski knocked his teammate off the top spot with about five minutes remaining.
Joey Logano was in the second spot once qualifying ended with a 25.850 seconds, 139.265 mph. This weekend Logano will start inside the top-10 for his eighth time at the Phoenix International Raceway. He was just 0.022 seconds off the pole once the session ended.
Jamie McMurray rounded out the top-three with a fast time of 25.305 seconds, 138.969 mph. It'll be his first inside the top-10 start of the 2014 racing season as he started 22nd last week in the Daytona 500. McMurray hopes to leave Phoenix with a much more solid run this weekend after a bad 2013.
Three drivers will fail to qualify for this weekend's event at the Phoenix International Raceway. Those drivers are, Josh Wise, Landon Cassill, and Dave Blaney. Despite posting a slower lap, Morgan Shephard will race on Sunday in the No. 87 Toyota. Justin Allgaier was the only driver to have an incident in the session after slapping the wall about three minutes into qualifying. The HS Motorsports team will switch to their back-up car.
Cole Custer finally captures a win at the Phoenix International Speedway this evening in the Talking Stick Resort 75. In his last NASCAR K&N Pro Series start at Phoenix, Custer got turned off turn four as he was coming to the checkered flag by second place Gray Gaulding. Tonight, Gaulding finished last, of 29th, after an issue with the engine on the first lap of the race to bring out a caution. Custer was able to capture his third win of his NKNPSW career. Custer not only won the race, but also started on the pole after a lap of 23.565 seconds, 131.536 mph.
Brennan Newberry, driving the No. 24 NTS Motorsports Chevrolet, drove to his second top-five career finish tonight in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West at the Phoenix International Raceway. Newberry moved up to second after Brandon McReynolds had promblems with his car up-front late in the race, this caused him to slip back to fourth. Newberry came short of the win by 0.376 seconds.
Nick Drake finished in the third spot this evening and scoring his first top-five finish in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. Drake was driving the No. 55 for Bill McAnally Racing, who almost put all three cars in the top-three spots if it wasn't for McReynolds trobles late in the race, in his first ever West division race.
Tonight's race will be televised on Friday, March 7th on FOX Sports 1 at 1:00 p.m. Et.
The NASCAR K&N Pro Series will head off to the Irwindale Speedway. This will be the first time the series returns to that track since July of 2011.

This weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will make their first of two stops at the Phoenix International Raceway for the 10th annual The Profit on CNBC 500, presented by Small Business Fueling America.
A total of 46 drivers will attempt to qualify this weekend, but three will go home. Some of the drivers on the entry list this weekend includes, Travis Kvapil, Brian Scott, Blake Koch, Landon Cassill, Joe Nemechek, Dave Blaney, Morgan Shepherd and Michael McDowell.
Dale Earnhardt, Jr. heads into this weekend with a lot of momentum after his Daytona 500 victory. Earnhardt Jr., has two wins at Phoenix coming back in 2003 and 2004, but hasn't been consistant. In 2013, he finished fifth and fourth at this track and hopes to get a much better finish this year at the 1-mile oval.
This weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will use the new qualifying proceedures put in place this last off-season. The new group qualifying will feature two rounds of action. The first round will last 30 minutes and consist of all drivers. After that time is up, NASCAR will take the top-12 drivers from the first 30 minutes, and put them on track for 10 minutes. This is NASCAR's attempt to make qualifying more enjoyable to the race fans.
You can catch the race this weekend live on FOX at 2:30 p.m. Et. The Motor Racing Network will handle the live radio broadcast of the race. You can listen on many radio stations around the country, TuneIn application, MRN.com or by dialing 1-832-999-1717 on your phone.
This weekend the NASCAR Nationwide Series heads to the Phoenix International Raceway for the 10th annual Blue Jeans Go Green 200. It will be the first of two stops during the 2014 season for the racing series at the 1-mile oval.
The entry list features 39 total drivers. Some of these include: Carlos Contreas, Ruben Garcia Mateos, Mike Wallace, Ryan Sieg, Josh Wise, Kyle Larson, Will Kimmel, Matt Dibenedetto, Derrike Cope, Mike Harmon, Tommy Joe Martins, Daryl Harr, Kevin Harvick, Martin Roy and Matthew Carter.
Joe Gibbs Racing has been the strongest team in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at the Phoenix Raceway. This weekend they will shoot for their fourth consecutive victory. In November of 2012, Logano scored the win at the track to start off this streak before moving over to the Penske Racing organization. In 2013, Kyle Busch captured the victory in both Phoenix races in the No. 54 Toyota. Besides Busch this weekend, Joe Gibbs Racing will also have Elliott Sadler and Matt Kenseth in a car.
Two drivers will attempt to make their NASCAR Nationwide Series debuts this weekend. Those drivers include Tommy Joe Martins and Martin Roy. Martins made five starts, with four coming in 2009, and one in 2011, in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Martin Roy is a full-time NASCAR Canadian Tire Series driver and will come over to drive the No. 90 Chevrolet for Mario Gosselin's team. In 2013, the 39-year-old Canadian made one start in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at Bristol Motor Speedway. He also made one start in the truck series last year at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park.
You can catch the NASCAR Nationwide Series race this weekend live on ABC. The Motor Racing Network will also have the live radio coverage for this event.
After a six-plus hour rain delay today at the Daytona International Speedway, NASCAR was finally able to get the race back going. Once the race started back up, it was all Dale Earnhardt Jr. chasing his second Daytona 500 victory. Tonight, Earnhardt Jr. scored his 20th win of his career and ending a winless drought since 2012. He joins a list of five drivers to have only scored two Daytona 500 wins in their racing career, with his last win in the event back in 2004. He heads into the Phoenix International Raceway with a five point lead.
“Yeah, I think so. Man, winning this race is the greatest feeling that you can feel in the sport, aside from obviously accepting the trophy for the championship. I didn’t know if I’d ever get a chance to feel that again and it feels just as good, if not better than the first because of how hard we tried year after year after year funning second all those years and wondering why and what we needed to do. I’ve got to get my head together," said Dale Earnhardt Jr. "This race car was awesome. We showed them there night long how good a car we had and it’s because of these guys right here putting it together in the shop. We could fight off battles after battles. We got a little help from Jeff (Gordon) to get away on that restart and tried to take care of it from there. This is amazing. I can’t believe this is happening. I’ll never take this for granted because this just doesn’t happen twice, let alone once. I’m so thankful."
Denny Hamlin fell just short of dominating all of Speedweeks this weekend. Hamlin came into tonight's race looking to be the first ever driver to have won the Sprint Unlimited, Duel and the Daytona 500 all in the same year. On the final lap, Hamlin lost the draft entering turn-three and didn't have help to push him to the front. Despite this, Hamlin had to settle for second and heads into one of his best tracks next weekend.
"“Well, it was intense for me. I had no spotter. Our radios weren’t working after we went back green after the rain so just had to wing it on my own really for the most part after we went back. If I cut anyone off I’m sorry, just trying to do it out there on my own,” said Hamlin. “It was intense. Everyone was content not to run the top line, which was good. I thought for sure we’d wreck more cars, but still that was a great race for the fans. It was a great race from my standpoint. It was just so hard to pass -- similar to when we got out front. You can block your way to a victory, and really Dale (Earnhardt Jr.) just played it perfectly once he got out front on that last fuel run -- everyone else is just side by side and you really can’t make any moves.”
Brad Keselowski came home third in the 56th annual Daytona 500 after being in the lead four different times tonight. When the field was frozen, with the caution off turn four coming to the finish, Keselowski just edged out in-front of Jeff Gordon for the position. He earned his third top-10 finish after 10 starts at Daytona and led a total of 13 laps this evening.
“We had a really fast Miller Lite Ford and just came up a little short there at the end. We had a good restart but didn’t get any help from behind. I was really proud of my car and team to be able to hold fourth with no help. Dale and his teammates were really fast and they did a good job executing at the end. Congratulations to him,” said Keselowski. “If I had maybe one or two cars behind me I think I could have maybe had a shot but I just didn’t get it.”
The next race for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will be next weekend at the Phoenix International Raceway. You can catch The Profit on CNBC 500 live on FOX at 2:00 p.m. Et. Not near a TV? The Motor Racing Network will provide the live radio broadcast of the event.
Kyle Busch captured the win this evening in the 15th annual Nextra Energy Resources 250 at the Daytona International Speedway for his 36th win in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Busch's impressive NASCAR win total now sits at 126 and will probably only get bigger as the races continue during Speedweeks. Busch also claimed a big defeat by becoming the first driver to score a win at Daytona in the ARCA Racing Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck, Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series. Since 2007, Toyota has scored their eighth consecutive victory in the series at the Daytona International Speedway.
Coming home in the second spot was Timothy Peters after driving a hard fought race in the No. 17 for Red Horse Racing. He led the third most laps of any driver this evening of 20. He finished second by just 0.017 seconds and nearly held off Busch just enough to win the race. Peters will take this momentum into Martinsville next month where he has had numerous success in the past.
The 2013 winner of the Nextra Energy Resources 250, Johnny Sauter, drove his No. 98 Toyota to a third place finish. Sauter was up-front nearly the whole race but could never get out front to lead a lap. In six total starts at the 2.5-mile oval, Sauter scored his second top-10 finish this evening.
The next race for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will be at the Martinsville Speedway on March 29th. You can catch the race live on FOX Sports 1 at 2:30 p.m. Et. The Motor Racing Network will carry the live radio broadcast of the event.

Weather forced NASCAR Camping World Truck Series qualifying to be canceled this afternoon at the Daytona International Speedway. For all three races this weekend, all rookie drivers will earn the pole for the events. The line up was set via practice speeds combined in the three sessions held this weekend.
Ben Kennedy will start on the pole tonight in the season opening NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. Kennedy, like Kwasniewski in the Nationwide Series, will be making his debut this evening behind the wheel of a Turner-Scott Motorsports truck.
Starting on the outside of Kennedy, will be the series veteran of Ron Hornday. Tonight at the Daytona International Speedway, he will be behind the wheel of the No. 30 truck, also owned by Turner-Scott Motorsports.
Ryan Blaney will start the race in the third spot breaking the Turner-Scott Motorsports sweep for the top-three spots. Blaney goes into tonight's Nextra Energy Resources 250 looking to score his third career win in the series. He also goes into the race this evening with momentum left over from 2013 after a second place finish at Homestead.
Todd Peck will be the only driver who will fail to qualify. Charles Lewandoski withdrew from the race before the scheduled qualifying session.

Starting on his outside will be teammate Kyle Larson after running in that Turner-Scott Motorsports draft with a 46.857 second lap time. The time averaged out to 192.074 mph. lap time. Larson lost the pole to Kwasniewski by just 0.001 seconds.
In the third starting position will be Danica Patrick in the No. 30 Chevrolet this weekend. Patrick was at the tail-end of the three car draft and ended up posting a lap of 46.867 seconds, 192.033 mph. Patrick missed the pole by just 0.011 seconds.
